Internal documents show political aides in the Prime Minister’s Office concealed the figures for fear “it’ll beg questions that we’re playing favourites.” A whopping 85% of federal emergency supply flights from China ended up landing in Quebec during the first two months of the COVID-19 pandemic, says Blacklock’s Reporter. Internal documents show political aides in the Prime Minister’s Office concealed the figures for fear “it’ll beg questions that we’re playing favourites.” “I’d caution against using a percentage of how many flights we’ve been helping Québec,” Matt Stickney, the prime minister’s executive director of operations, wrote in a May 3, 2020 e-mail. “I’d say we’ve been working very closely with Québec and helping as much as we can to get goods back from Asia. “I just think it’ll beg questions that we’re playing favourites with Québec and end up in English media.” Records showed from the outbreak of the pandemic on March 11, 2020 to May 3, a total 17 of 20 emergency flights from China organized by the Department of Health carried supplies for Québec. Cargo jets were loaded with masks, medical gloves and other personal protective equipment.
