I still recall just four to five months ago, everyone is whining masks should be made within Canada. And some companies actually started to make those things, I am just wondering what happened to those companies. How do they compete with these?

This is true. However with these disposable masks I've been getting a rash on my face and also they can be pretty smelly from god knows what material they make them out of. My 100% cotton mask is much more comfortable now. I'm sure it's not as effective as the disposable but I just can't go back to that.

Due to economies of scale, and other factors, from existing foreign manufacturers, and with the current prices of masks, I doubt it would be economically feasible for a made in Canada solution for these disposable masks.

I think price will vary based on the quality of the mask. So perhaps you have some good masks compared to the $7.99 box.

I got a $20 box mask from costco, and I think the costco one is better or at least similar quality to my $60 box bought in March.

Agreed! Justin gave a few manufacturers (in Ont and Que if i'm correct) a large donation to produce these items. Where are the products?
Compete? Good question, even at min wage these masks are going to be way more expensive.

i doubt it. Capacity has caught up with demand.

First of all... not cool. But second, given that you can get them easily now for under $20 and sometimes for under $10, I just don't understand why they'd risk p!ssing off their customers like this.
This deal is better than havoc gsi without gapps!!

Even top end 3M N95 have a characteristic smell. It's due to the polypropylene plastic used as the filtration material.
