Canada said on Monday it was pressing Washington over a complaint that United States officials had blocked the export of three million face masks bought by the province of Ontario to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
All of this comes on the heels of a statement last week by 3M saying that the Trump administration had ordered the company to stop exporting N95 respirators to Canada and Latin America.

"That's unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable that they're doing this", Ford said in an interview with Global News.
On Friday, the United States stopped the export of masks from Minnesota-based 3M to Canada.
"These conversations have been progressing well and we are optimistic that the USA government will grant Canada an exemption", the office said.
Ford says he is a "trust but verify" type of person and until he physically sees the masks in Ontario, he will not be sure.
He later added during his press conference that the 500,000 masks being released should buy Ontario healthcare workers an extra week of personal protective equipment, but that the situation was still dire.
In Canada, there are 15,496 confirmed cases and 280 deaths so far.
