Trudeau: masked in Canada, maskless in Ukraine

Justin Trudeau was seen maskless for most of his stay in majority-unvaccinated Ukraine, despite donning the showpiece while in majority-vaccinated Canada.

It wouldn’t be big news if masks hadn’t become such a political issue. Indeed, despite cases, hospitalizations, and deaths from COVID plummeting, the Ontario Liberals are fighting tooth and nail to win the provincial election so they can reinstate mask mandates.

While Trudeau hasn’t forced the provinces to readopt their mask mandate policies, the federal Liberals have continued to impose mask mandates for planes and trains, even after a US judge struck down mask mandates for planes in the country.

Moreover, while visiting Ukraine, Trudeau appeared totally unperturbed by being surrounded by so many presumably unvaccinated Ukrainians, even though he has expressed utter contempt for “anti-vaxxers” in his home country Canada.

“That was when Trudeau launched a strident, angry, ugly fusillade against “anti-vaxxers” in a French-language TV interview that has now caught the attention of English media. In it, he painted “these people,” the anti-vaxxers, as “often” being women-haters, racists and science-deniers, as well,” the National Post’s Rex Murphy wrote as the Freedom Convoy was beginning its long trip to Ottawa.

According to Reuters, at maximum, only 35.7 per cent of Ukraine’s eligible population are fully vaccinated. Our World in Data puts this figure slightly higher, with only 72.86 (36.43) people per hundred possibly receiving two doses.
Meanwhile, in Canada, 85.79 per cent of the eligible population are fully vaccinated, while 89.21 per cent have received at least one dose. In fact, more Canadians have received a booster (47.96 per cent) in Canada than have received a single dose in Ukraine — and that statistic includes those who aren’t eligible in Canada.
