Are the Justin Trudeau Liberals really doing all they can to protect the Canadian public when it comes to foreign flights touching down on Canadian soil? Sadly, it appears that the answer to that question is no. Surprised?
I ventured back to Toronto’s Pearson International Airport to query passengers exiting flights originating from the UK and Beijing, China.
And once again, it was a mixed bag of answers in terms of what information is being conveyed by Canada Border Service Agency frontline staff.
For example, some passengers told me they were verbally told what to do in terms of #coronovirus precautions and self-quarantining procedures whereas others said they were just handed a pamphlet and told to read it.
And contrary to what Health Minister Patricia Hajdu stated last week, not a single person was given a mask (nor did anyone witness anyone else receiving a mask or did anyone spot a supply of such masks... maybe because Justin Trudeau inexplicably gifted most of our mask inventory to China back in February?)
And there were some other concerns about the flight from Beijing. For example, most people I approached could barely speak or understand English. So, unless the CBSA personnel are fluent in Mandarin and/or Cantonese, can passengers flying to Canada from the world’s Coronovirus epicentre truly comprehend what they are being told?
Also, even the carrier, Hainan Airlines, was a bit of a red flag. You’ve likely never flown on this airliner — which might be a good thing. Indeed, in my report, I have included a snippet of an online video review of this carrier by Paul Lucas who presents a preponderance of evidence to make his case that Hainan is “the filthiest [airliner] I have ever travelled in.”
