The Prime Ministers of New Zealand and Canada were traveling together on a jet from London to New York.
Both leaders had just spent a number of days attending Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, where they appeared in numerous public and private events, many attended by thousands of people, without a face mask.
During the flight Trudeau tweeted a photo of the two seated across a table in discussion while wearing face masks.
‘Prime Minister @JacindaArdern and I have touched base on the phone, over video calls, at summits – and now on planes. As we traveled together from London, we reflected on Her Majesty The Queen’s devotion to service and the connection she had with Canadians and New Zealanders.
‘We also spoke about Ukraine, climate change, violent extremism, reconciliation, and how we can make progress on these files together. We’ll keep working – wherever we find ourselves meeting – to build a better future for the people of Canada and the people of New Zealand.’

A tweet by Cam Slater of The BFD summed up the reaction of some kiwis to the message:
They’ve just been sitting maskless in Westminster Abbey with thousands of others but put masks on to sit across from each other…the stupid is strong in these two. Virtue signalling fools https://t.co/JLabfBpkor

The reaction to Slater’s tweet was brutal:
And then he take the mask off to do the video it’s all optics
Exactly my thoughts. They think we are thick.
Most of their supporters are too thick to realize the level hypocrisy these two engage in.
It’s because Canada still has a mask mandate on flights. So that theatre is just aimed at making Canadians think that it is still necessary.
Which one is more vapid, inane, empty-headed, hollow, pc and platitudinous ? I can never tell.
Its now at the point that I honestly believe she needs a psychiatric evaluation, her babbling comments are beyond being coherent as are her none sensical sentences, her ability to not even read the room but mentally she isn’t even in the same fuk’n room. Now this mask wearing
Canadians didn’t hold back in calling out their Prime Minister either:
Two dictators. Nothing good could come from this conversation.
2 WEF shills working-NOT what people want
were you guys at the same funeral?.. so why the masks now?
History will not be kind to you both.
Hey haven’t you heard? Pandemic is over! Biden said so. So y’know… both of you can, um, free your people from your dictatorships.
You both seem to be unliked well enough by many in your own countries as it is,but if you’re both fully vaccinated,and didn’t wear a mask in a England why are you making out you wore one in this photo opportunity ? Or is it that the turbulence would have been worse without them ?
No one believes you wore a mask for the entire flight. Nice photo op & propaganda.
Why are you unmasked here?https://t.co/e6Hy04nk7D

You’ve just been in UK with no mask. How more blatantly obvious that this is all an act. Both of you are hated all over the world for your shocking dictatorship
The 2 masked clowns. A title for a most horrific reality, based on a script by wef, directed by unkle klaus, starring his majesty beloved fearless leader peopleking trudeu the second, and the other socialist, whatever she is called down south. Pathetic yet dangerous pretends.
Thank goodness you “touched base” on climate change while producing 16 metric tons of CO2 during your private jet flight. Well done.
So you spend 3 days in the #UK with about 60 million people without a mask. Now you have a mask for the photos. What’s up with your science Justy boy?
Her popularity is plummeting as is yours.
