    So Trump is stopping 3M from exporting masks to Canada

    I hope Trudeau stops all Canadian healthcare proffessionals that work in the US to stop working in the US effective immediately

    Re: Coronavirus

    I believe 3M are fighting that order, based on the theory that it will actually end up hurting the US in the long run. I'm sure Trump hasn't even thought about how it creates a bad precedent going forward, seeing as he's beyond caring. As a Canadian that takes most of these stories with more than one grain of salt, this one really pisses me off. The sheer audacity and selfishness towards a country that did nothing but help you during times of strife is disgusting. For fucks sake, they made a goddamn MUSICAL about how well we treat our "friendly" neighbours down south.

    The funniest part about this whole thing is that the US needs the pulp we manufacture in BC to make those masks. Haven't noticed anyone over here saying we should just tell them to fuck off. I guess that's because the people in charge here aren't only thinking about themselves.

    EDIT: Just saw this so I'll chime in...

    I hope for the exact opposite. It's in everyone's best interests to help each other right now. Doing something like that would just make us more like that asshole. I'd rather not be lumped into that category.

    This is a time for people to be better. In every facet, in every moment. Hopefully most of us will take lessons from this going forward, and realize that acting in your own self interest's isn't always ideal.

    I admit, that comment was a knee jerk reaction.

    Its just the audacity of Trump do something like this.

    It's cool man. There's nothing wrong with being pissed about the situation. It's definitely a side effect of having to change our whole lives overnight with no clear sign of when we'll be able to get back to normal. Knee jerk reactions are going to be much more common when that's factored in. I'm just staying optimistic that this is a good chance for most of us to show that we're inherently good people.

    Re: Coronavirus

    I think an exception should be made for Canada with them being so close.

    However, sending them overseas? That should stop until we are sure we have enough here. Sorry, not sorry.
