Rex Murphy: Leave it to Trudeau to find a way to make air travel worse than it already was

Taking a flight in Canada can be a puzzling experience these days, not to mention wildly frustrating. I refer, of course, as those who have flown, or tried to fly, recently know all too well, to the still-maintained mask and vaccination mandates at Canadian airports.

These mandates deny all who, for whatever reason, or set of reasons, are not vaccinated, the right and ability to fly within their own country. I see various estimates of how many they are, but the number is in the millions. That’s just a prefatory fact.

So what does going to any airport to travel within Canada look like? Obviously, you must grab your “papers.” You will also receive from one of the airlines any number of emails telling you how to “prepare” for going to the airport.

Normally, this process is so uncomplicated that most people are able to figure it out on their own. But with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s airport regime — for it is his government that has stubbornly kept these decrepit rules in place — the airlines feel they have to provide a manual for the experience. It is very annoying and twice as officious.

Once in an airport, you abandon the life you had before you entered. For example, in Toronto, you may now walk the streets, go into stores, participate in large gatherings — a baseball game, a Pierre Poilievre rally — without wearing a mask. You may sit with hundreds and even thousands without the cloth stigmata of the declining plague, breathe the same air as they and offer your own exhalations to the crowd around you.

However, in the airport, have that damn mask on or suddenly various marplots will grimly remind you that you must put your mask on or face some terrible retribution: Removal from the airport, denial of your flight — chased out of the concourse Tim Hortons under a hail of stale doughnuts.

So though you have been going about your business for weeks and weeks in Toronto without a mask, once you enter Pearson International Airport, you are back in pandemic central.

the problem with liberals is that they're making air travel so complicated that everyone will have to stay in country and be indoctrinated by leftist masters.

I had several family members fly out from Winnipeg last week and they commented on how it was actually easier than they anticipated it would be. They managed to navigate it all by themselves, obviously they're smarter than Rex Murphy.

No, ol' Rexy is correct. Liberals have decimated air travel and the rainbow parades that are blocking airplane paths are also causing problems.

Can someone explain to me why the article writer is complaining about wearing a mask in airports?

Masks are still required in hospitals and health care settings and people aren’t having trouble navigating the buildings. How does wearing a mask in an airport hinder travel plans or make the experience unsavoury?

They were just relieved to get out of the s__t hole.

And they haven't flown out of Lester Pearson Airport.

Meh. It's a bunch of whining. I flew international through Pearson 2 weeks ago. Waited in line 2.5 hours to get through security. Then flight delayed by 1.5 hours to leave. Waited on a tarmac for 1.5 hours to have an accessible gate when arriving. Waited an hour while flying out of Pearson when 2 officers boarded our plane right before we were going to taxi out and arrested a guy. Flight was delayed by 2 hours leaving our destination due to not enough staff. Big deal. I never let it bother me and just chilled out.

That adds up to about eight hours of delays.
I guess that's what Canadians have come to expect as normal.

Well it is currently normal because we can't hire people we don't have. This is a larger issue than customer service can deal with right now and I won't add to anyone's stress levels. I was simply grateful to go on an adventure and glad they helped me get there and back.

More like "We can't hire people who were fired for not getting vaccinated", and "we can't lift any of the restrictions", and "we can't make the restrictions more transparent for the travelling public". Normalizing all of that is what's becoming "currently normal", the Liberals know this and use it to their advantage.

IMO, stereotyping and bigotry are generally far more toxic than people's personal choices.

Too many of today's Liberals are proving themselves to be toxic - unable to address any issues without resorting to tactics that are divisive and nasty. Seems they're no longer interested in taking the high road, nor are too many of their supporters.
