Coronavirus: Canada to receive 'millions' of masks from China, Trudeau says

Source: Global News

Canada is set to receive “millions” of medical masks from China, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Saturday.

Trudeau made the comments from Rideau Cottage, where he is currently self-isolating.

According to Trudeau, in the next 48 hours Canada will be receiving a shipment of millions of masks by a chartered cargo flight from China.

Trudeau said included in the shipment are items ordered for Quebec, where the most cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Canada.

Trudeau’s comments come a day after U.S. President Donald Trump asked Minnesota-based company 3M not to supply N95 respirators to Canada.

What an ROI Vladimir Putin is getting.

1. This is how a TRUE leader acts.

He did not make useless rude squawks on twitter or waste time thinking how he could get back at trump.

Only a day after trump refused to assist, Trudeau had already completed plan b.

Canada, can we have your leader? Uh, maybe borrow him for just awhile?

3. I am told the fiber for the US made 3M masks comes from Canada; a special cedar


tRump is trying to break the long term promise that 3M made to provide masks, so that Canada and Mexico would not have to build plants.

3M seems like a bit of a hero in this story: Keeping a PROMISE with TRUSTED ALLIES and NEIGHBOURS to help.

6. I wouldn't count on him

not seizing any shipment coming from any other country, for HIS inventory, and personal prejudice in distributing the supplies. I'm sure Jared got spanked by Trailer Trash Barbie and her "daddy" for his slip up of TIPPING THE HAT about how Trump and his spawn view the entire inventory of critical supplies....

("THEIRS", not "ours"..... Didn't Trump also Shanghai a ton of stuff purchased by Germany and on it's way to their country?

The only way Trump, his spawn, his cabal, and the entire republican party know how to do things is by way of corruption, ignoring any and all laws, regulations, or rules. That, and backhandedly, under the table, in the shadows, stacking the deck in their direction.
