A Canadian airline says it canceled a flight from Calgary to Toronto because a 3-year-old did not wear a mask.
However, passenger Safwan Choudhry disputes that allegation by WestJet, saying that airline staff was trying to force his 19-month-old daughter to wear a mask.
He claimed that his 3-year-old daughter, whom the airline said did not wear a mask, did in fact have one on during the Tuesday incident, according to CBC News.
The airline was adamant that the older child did not wear a mask and that the family refused to cooperate
