  • Trudeau expressed concern about loosening lockdown measures in Montreal

These eight million that were turned away are from a Montreal-based supplier and were made in China.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada will not pay the full price for medical masks that do not live up to medical standards.

Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller said outbreaks of COVID-19 in First Nations communities may have been delayed due to their remoteness, but the government needs to remain vigilant in the future.

Trudeau said Canada is also "ramping up" domestic manufacturing capacity to "ensure that we're we're covering the needs that we have for the longer term". While Trudeau said it is being worked on, he cautioned that in many areas of the country we are still in the emergency phase, "We are not even fully in the restarting phase and nowhere near a recovery phase".

Personal protective equipment for healthcare workers will have to come from somewhere else.

Anand's office said none of the approximately eight million masks that fell below federal standards were distributed for medical use, though assessment is ongoing for other uses.

It's not summer just yet, but one side of the country can lounge on pool floats and soak up the sun this Mother's Day weekend. Snow covered parts of the Sussex and Morris counties and even reached Central Park in New York City, a rare occurrence.

The minister's office also told The Canadian Press that almost 11 million masks have been received from this particular supplier.

The institute, which worked with experts from Laval University, said new cases could spike to 10,000 a day by June amid a potential "rapid increase" in hospitalizations. "That is the scientific conclusion", Miller said.

"I'm afraid of more people dying and more outbreaks", said Dr. Howard Njoo, the country's deputy chief public health officer. "But to businesses hit by COVID-19, know this: The wage subsidy will continue to be there for you".

Montreal was initially scheduled to reopen its schools, daycares, and businesses on May 11, but Quebec Premier Francois Legault pushed that back to May 25 amid heavy criticism.

The comments came less than 24 hours after Quebec's public health institute said deaths could soar to 150 a day in the greater Montreal area if physical distancing measures created to limit the spread of COVID-19 are lifted.
