  1. The smell in my old Custom 100’s would kill ANY virus!

  2. This will lead to Don Cherry complaining about how the Quebecois and Europeans wear too much PPE. Back in the day, good ‘ol Canadian nurses worked without any medical gear and how these kids are too soft.

  3. Can someone explain to me how these companies can quickly begin retooling their factories for this equipment?

  4. What kills me on the inside is I know once this is all over… trump will take credit for everything good that has happened in society here

  5. It’s funny how all of a sudden we care about the value of human life. Sad that it takes a pandemic or tragedy to wake us up. I hope we learn to take of each other from this

  6. Whether it’s on the ice or in the OR, this medical gear is guaranteed to be well padded and will handle a good body check in the corner!

  7. What does the Harlem Shake guy know about medical gear?

  8. I thought for sure it was just going to be a hockey helmet with a stacked, double high visor.

  9. Oksy but i call dibs on a mirrored faceshield, Ovi 2006 style

  10. These guys made the best rollerblades back in the day

  11. Good news and more importantly, they can start on Monday.

  12. Hoser innovation at it’s finest, eh?

  13. Meanwhile healthcare workers are wearing trash bags. I’m sure they’d appreciate something asap.

  14. The world needs to wake up and reevaluate the supply chain model we’ve been using for the past 20 years now.

    Relying on a single source isn’t sustainable or reasonable and bringing production of certain things back onshore will be key to kick starting economies back again.

  15. The Federal Government has issued a [Call to Action](https://www.canada.ca/en/services/business/maintaingrowimprovebusiness/manufacturers-needed.html) for manufacturers across the country to do just this. Really great to see companies stepping up like this.

  16. Are we going to talk about the fact that it looks like he’s missing his two front teeth?

  17. N95 masks now come with BNQ certification.

    On another note, I once made a fucking awesome set of crutched from broken one-piece sticks. And some deck chairs. And tables. And some on-ice instructional aids.

    I may have broken too many sticks.

  18. I’d imagine they will be collectables once this is all over. – don’t hord them.

  19. The Bauer factory in Kitchener is converted to lofts now I think.

  20. armour reinforced facemask

    I’m down with that
