Health Minister Patty Hajdu says she went maskless at airport only while eating

The photo of Hajdu without a mask was posted Sunday evening by a self-described aide to Alberta's advanced-education minister.

It shows Hajdu seated in a chair by herself with a piece of rolling luggage next to her, either speaking or smiling.

Hajdu replied by saying that following public health rules is important to her and she removes her mask only when those rules allow it — when eating or drinking, for example.

There's no food or drink apparent in the image, though there is an open paper bag just visible on Hajdu's side, away from the camera.

In July, then-Conservative leader Andrew Scheer and Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister were photographed talking in a departure area at Pearson airport without masks. Pallister later apologized for the lapse.
