The owner of a British Columbia mill that makes pulp for surgical masks, gowns and other medical supplies says the shortage of personal protective equipment is a global problem, and companies should be helping out to the best of their ability.

"Wherever medical supplies are needed and where there's a shortage, everybody should be doing their part to make sure they can supply as much medical supplies to the front line as possible," said Harmac Pacific president Levi Sampson.
