Procurement minister's office: Don't brag about N95 mask numbers “given how many are substandard”

Internal emails from the Trudeau Liberals suggested changing a statement on the procurement of PPE last year based on the fact that many of the masks were too “substandard” to distribute.

Elliott Lockington, a staffer with Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) requested a revision to include “the total number” of N95 masks obtained by the federal government in a response to Liberal Party MP Marcus Powlowski (Thunder Bay—Rainy River) on June 6, 2020:

Can we add Hajdu lines on us meeting [every] request of the provinces so far and the total number n 95 we have procured?

Staffer Tristan Laycock replied advising a change of language, because many of the N95 masks procured by the government were “substandard”:

I've asked what they have in terms of those lines.

How about N95s distributed? Or maybe N95s in the past x weeks? Just not sure there's anything to brag about in terms of total number given how many are substandard.
