Trudeau defends supply management, wants 'fact' based trade talk with US

Trudeau defends supply management, wants 'fact' based trade talk with US

Standing up for dairy farmers in Wisconsin "demands fair trade with all of our trading partners", Trump said, "and that includes Canada".

At issue is a recently-adopted Canadian policy that makes it more hard for American dairy farms to sell ultra-filtered milk across the border - a rule Canadian leaders say protects its own producers, but which the National Milk Producers Federation estimates could cost NY and Wisconsin farmers more than $150 million each year. And we have a supply management system that works very well here in Canada.

Of course Donald Trump has his faults, as Art Betke stated but when it comes to unqualified leaders, Canada elected one a whole year before the U.S.

Canada's envoy to Washington has shot back at criticism by President Donald Trump and US milk producers, saying the facts don't support a charge that the Canadian dairy industry is to blame for the woes of some American farmers.

"With our growing concern that even more of our milk producers and our processors will be affected, I urge the federal government to call on Canada to reconsider these harmful regulations and continue our courteous, mutually beneficial trade relations", Cuomo said in a statement.

While threatening further strikes, the U.S. envoy also said it was time to press on with a political solution to the six-year war. US President Donald Trump retaliated to the images of dead children by ordering an air strike to be conducted on Syria .

Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sent Trump a letter on Tuesday urging him to take action.

That was the backstory behind the US president's surprise decision to call out Canada by name Tuesday, putting dairy farmers north of the border on notice that they are in America's fair-trade sights.

The current system limits the amount of dairy and poultry Canada can import before a tariff kicks in.

"U.S. dairy exports support approximately 110,000 jobs across America, many of which are in farming and food manufacturing, as well as in supporting rural manufacturing and skilled farm service workers", the organizations said in the letter.

At the beginning of this month, Grassland Dairy Products notified 75 Wisconsin farmers their milk contract would end in May. Carr will be in NY next week. "We have such a long and fruitful history of trade with the United States".

"Processors are starting to feel the economic pinch" of the policy, which went into effect February 1, said Steve Ammerman, spokesman for the New York Farm Bureau. "It's a disgrace", Trump said.

"We are full now but these are great farms that we hate to pass up at this time because it is something for our future growth".

The disruption is blamed on new policies in Canada created to push out USA imports, including milk.

Trump last week promised "pleasant surprises" from planned renegotiations of NAFTA, an agreement he's called the worst deal in USA history.
