"Anomalies" During Ejection in October

Apparently there were issues during the ejection sequence when Capt. Kevin Domon-Grenier ejected from his Tutor last October in Georgia.

From a Dec. 1, 2019 article on Avweb:
Domon-Grenier was taken to a hospital as a precaution but released that evening. He reported “anomalies” with the ejection but the RCAF did not elaborate on what went wrong.
The ejections in this case looked as if the seats left the aircraft OK, but didn't counteract the descent at all. Do the Snowbirds' Tutor's still use the old Weber seats?
