Just a short note to tell you that I’m not too impressed with you, lately… It sadens me, because I dearly love many of your people. But you’re not being fairplay, and knowing how things are going all around the world, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Yesterday, the news reported that in China, masks ready to be shipped to France, masks that had been paid for, had mysteriously been re-directed to you. I was cautious about pointing a finger at you, because it happened in China, and I was aware that we probably didn’t have all the details. But it looked bad, and rumors had it that you had paid three times the price, cash, to get your hands on the French order. Nonetheless, I gave you the benefit of a doubt.
This morning, 10 000 masks arrived in Montréal from China. The shipping was stored in a DHL building, waiting to be distributed to hospitals. But then, surprise surprise! The order mysteriously disappeared! For some reason, the masks have been sent to Ohio…
Now, I know that you see Canada as this docile, geeky neighbour living upstairs. We might not come as a threat to you, but I would be careful if I were you. Being neighbours doesn’t mean we have to be friends, and if you’re not willing to play by the rules, it’ll come and bite you in the ass someday!
You’re facing a crisis? So are we! And so is France, and all the countries you might have ”stolen” medical products from. What? You’re not the only country doing it? Well, if you are, as you like to claim out and loud, the greatest nation on Earth, you should set an example!
Oh, and before you get a chance to reply, don’t you dare fake-newsing me!
I still wish you all the best, given the present circumstances…
