WestJet to review policy after Poilievre’s plane speech criticized

Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
WestJet says it is reviewing its policies after a video showing Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre using a plane’s public address (PA) system drew criticism on social media and from the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).

On Monday, Poilievre posted a video on X, formerly known as Twitter, showing him addressing a plane full of people on a WestJet flight to Calgary. In the video, the politician’s voice could be heard through speakers throughout the plane, where he thanked the pilot and cabin crew of the plane while also criticizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s policies.

“Who’s ready to give a big thank you to the WestJet pilots and crew?” he asked in the video. “There will be a little bit of turbulence but it will only last for about two years… We’ll have a totally new pilot and crew in charge, pierce through the storm and safely land in our home, the country we know and love. Your home, my home, our home… Let’s bring it home.”

Afterward, CUPE Alberta Local 4070 said in a statement on social media Tuesday evening that it was “disappointed” Poilievre was allowed to use the plane’s PA system for a political speech.
