On Friday's DAILY livestream Ezra expanded on a Tweet that he'd sent out to WestJet after they announced that, starting September 1, the company would enforce a "zero-tolerance" mask policy for all customers who choose to fly on their planes.
WestJet, not exactly known for having the purest of business practices, declares in their statement:
Effective, September 1, 2020, the WestJet Group will implement a zero-tolerance policy in support of the requirement for all guests, over the age of two, to wear masks and face coverings. Non-compliant guests will face penalties including denied boarding, return of the aircraft to the gate to offload the passenger and the suspension of travel on any WestJet Group aircraft for up to one year.
The notice goes on to state just how the company plans to enforce their questionable policy against non-compliant passengers in a "three-step process":
1. Passengers will first be asked to put the mask on in a discussion with cabin crew.
2. Passengers will be given a warning that masks are required, and compliance is necessary.
3. Passengers will receive notice that non-compliance will result in follow up notification that they will be placed on a no-fly list for 12-months.
Ezra was quick to point out the contradiction between WestJet's policy, and the official guidelines imposed by Transport Canada's mask regulations:
