FREDERICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK ~~~~  September 11, 2020  (LSN)  WestJet strikes again, removes New Brunswick family from flight headed to Toronto to visit critically ill son

A New Brunswick family was removed from a WestJet flight after their two-year-old son was unable to wear a mask while going to see his critically ill brother.

In the newest episode in the WestJet “zero tolerance mask policy” saga, one that left a flight stranded in Calgary just this week, a Fredericton-area father and son were forced to deplane because the two-year-old was unable to keep his mask on.

Carolyn Munn and her son Josiah have been living away from their family in Toronto, where Josiah has been awaiting a critically needed heart transplant. Josiah has a hole in the two bottom pumping chambers of his heart as well as a heart muscle disease which is preventing his heart muscle from squeezing efficiently.

He was with his mother Carolyn in Toronto awaiting news on a heart transplant. Carolyn arranged for her husband, Aaron, and other son, Emmett, to visit on August 24.

It would have been the first time the family would have been together in three months. But just as Aaron and Emmett were set to depart from the Fredericton International Airport, WestJet staff forced the father and son to leave the plane because Emmett was unable to keep his mask on.

According to WestJet’s mask policy, travellers over two years old are required to wear a mask. Emmett turned two years old in March.

The family rebooked their flight with Air Canada and Aaron and Emmett arrived in Toronto safely, where they are together waiting for news on Josiah’s heart transplant.

On August 28, Rebel News founder and Ezra Levant announced on Twitter that anyone who has been impacted by WestJet’s “zero tolerance” policy is encouraged to contact him for assistance in legally pursuing WestJet.
