  • Canada signs agreement with Amazon Canada to manage distribution of medical equipment

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has warned the United States not to block manufacturer 3M from sending respirators to Canada.

"The (Trump) Administration also requested that 3M cease exporting respirators that we now manufacture in the United States to the Canadian and Latin American markets", read a press release from the company.

The prime minister would not directly address whether a cease in shipments from 3M would create a significant gap in this critical type of medical supply. According to Politico, the company has also said it went "above and beyond" with its production in recent months having doubled production in January, ahead of the outbreak in the U.S.

Trudeau also announced a new agreement with Amazon Canada to help distribute medical supplies across the country.

The order also forbade the export of respirators. "That is the point we are making very clearly to the American administration right now".

The prime minister said he's confident that message is getting through, and demurred when asked whether Canada was contemplating any retaliatory measures.

"We will continue to keep trade open with the United States", he said.

"We hit 3M hard today after seeing what they were doing with their Masks", Trump tweeted.

Trudeau did not provide details on the value of the contract, but a government news release issued later on Friday said Amazon was providing the service to Canadians at cost, without profit.

Freeland said the government is planning to "pull out all the stops" to press the US on its plans to limit supplies to Canada.

At his Friday press conference, Trudeau also announced the establishment of a $100 million fund for food banks.
