A day after former-NHL player Ryan Whitney called Pearson Airport a “hellhole” for its days-long delays, PM Justin Trudeau quickly and quietly hopped on his private jet to meet up with American bureaucrats. No delays at airports, no problems.

According to Justin Trudeau’s itinerary for June 7, Trudeau was able to effortlessly board a private plane to Colorado Springs at 1:00 p.m. He arrived at his destination promptly, less than 2 hours later.

Clearly, there were no delays to mention. But that isn’t the case for everyday people.

In a now-viral Twitter video that has amassed two million views in just over 24 hours, Whitney details his experience with the Canadian travel industry in painstaking detail.

“I don’t even really know where to explain. So for people telling me to drive, I can’t drive. [The airport] has my bags. They won’t give them back,” Whitney began.

He continues, detailing the abysmal conditions at Canadian airport due to the federal government’s insistence on keeping anti-science mandates and COVID-related travel requirements.

According to Whitney, he landed in Toronto at roughly 3 p.m. on Sunday, spent three hours in line to get through customs, and was told his flight was cancelled.

“At this point now, I go and see that there’s about a 400-person line with about two Air Canada workers. There [were] a million cancelled flights, and everyone was just panicking,” he continues.

He then waited for almost six more hours in line before Air Canada closed shop and told him to go somewhere else.

“By the time I finally speak to someone from Air Canada, it’s 1 a.m.,” Whitney said. At this point, adding that he asked for his luggage back so he could just drive across the border to Buffalo.

But no dice. Air Canada had such a backlog of missed flights that the luggage had built up and was deemed unretrievable.

He then booked a new flight, from Toronto to Boston, at 8 a.m. Whitney says he slept a few hours and returned over three hours early.

He was then told that Air Canada had made more changes and that he would need to depart in 50 minutes to head to Montreal. Thus, he would not clear security. As a result, his flight was cancelled again.

After jumping through more hoops, and more wait lines, Whitney finally managed to escape Canada.

This isn’t just the experience of Whitney, though. Thousands of Canadians and non-Canadians alike are experiencing a debilitated travel industry due to Trudeau’s travel requirements, which don’t affect him one iota.
