WestJet has commented publicly about their policy regarding how planes are book and if passengers can be bumped or not.

“WestJet does not intentionally overbook our flights. It may be useful to have a bit of background on what the difference is between intentionally overbooking and having an overbooking situation due to irregular operations. There are times when we do have too many guests for the number of seats due to the fact that we have had to swap a larger aircraft for a smaller one. This is an ad hoc situation that happens very infrequently. Intentional overbooking is done to compensate for the fact that some passengers don’t show up for their flight or cancel at the last minute. WestJet does not do this. We are proud of the care that we give our guests and this policy is part of this.” WestJest – April 26, 2017
