Canada's dairy measures a 'disgrace'

Canada's dairy measures a 'disgrace'

"We feel obligated to help wherever we can", said Vice President Bill Mullins.

Despite an earlier challenge before the World Trade Organization and concerns by domestic producers that it may be threatened by sweeping trade deals with three continents, Canada's supply management system, as the policy around dairy imports and production is known, has proven all but impossible to vanquish.

Indeed, Canada's softwood industry makes no secret of its own search for opportunities in China.

There are fears among Canadians that they could be hurt as Trump targets Mexico in a re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. "U.S. exports of milk protein substances, including diafiltered milk to Canada, were USD$98 million in 2016, up from USD$33 million in 2011".

Industry groups in New Zealand, Australia, the European Union, Mexico and the United States complained that the new prices for Canadian milk ingredients under-cut their exports to Canada. And again I want to also just mention: included in there is lumber, timber and energy.

"[NAFTA] has been very, very bad for our companies and for our workers, and we're going to make some very big changes or we are going to get rid of NAFTA for once and for all", Mr Trump said on Tuesday.

Charles Schumer said today he will back President Donald Trump in his effort to back American dairy farmers in a developing trade war with Canada.

He wrote that "Canada's dairy industry is less protectionist than that of the US, which has employed technical barriers to keep Canadian dairy out of the USA market", and noted that USA exports of milk protein substances significantly increased from 33 million US dollars in 2011 to98 million US dollars past year.

"There's always going to be irritants", he told Canada's Business News Network (BNN) in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Trudeau made his remarks prior to Trump's latest broadside, which came just minutes later.

"We're not putting up any tariffs; we're not subsidizing ultra-filtered (milk) to be exported to the United States", said Herman.

In his letter to the governors of Wisconsin and New York, MacNaughton argues that Canada is not responsible for the dairy industry's southward borders, based on a report by the US Department of Agriculture (United States Department of Agriculture).

President Donald Trump dove straight into a trade fight with Canada, promising US dairy farmers his administration would intervene to restore exports of American milk. In fact, starting today. Now, I understand how certain governors are speaking to certain constituencies on that.

The surprise tongue-lashing represents some of the new administration strongest anti-Canada rhetoric thus far, and a significant departure from the relatively warm reception Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received on his first meeting with Trump in the US capitol.

"(Trump) has shown that if he says one thing and then hears good counter-arguments, or good reasons why he should shift his position, he will take a different position ...
