Trudeau calls Sunwing flight party “a slap in the face” amid Omicron COVID-19 surge

CA, 06 Jan 2022
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said it was “a slap in the face” for a group of Quebec reality television stars and influencers to party maskless and disregarding COVID-19 rules on a recent Sunwing flight from Montreal to Cancun, Mexico.

Videos of the Dec. 30 flight shared on social media show passengers not wearing masks as they use vapes, hold a large bottle of vodka and sing and dance in the aisles and on seats.

“It’s a slap in the face to see people putting themselves, putting their fellow citizens, putting airline workers at risk by being completely irresponsible,” Trudeau said on Wednesday.

He added that the videos made him feel “extremely frustrated,” and said Transport Canada was taking the situation “very seriously” and there would be a “full investigation.”
