Canada hits back in dairy dispute with the US

"That hasn't happened yet", said Schumer, who added dairy-specific actions would come by this summer.

Speaking in Wisconsin on Tuesday, Trump singled out Canada's treatment of US dairy products as an example of unfair trade practices.

Bernier calls supply management a cartel, a phrase his competitor Erin O'Toole says turns farming families into nothing more than political props. The root of the problem, the issue that we're dealing with, is an over supply of milk.I say 'Mr.

"This could be devastating to our dairy sector and to our entire supply management", said the MP. "And it's not going to be happening for long".

Following Trump's remarks, the Canadian government has reached out to both the NY and Wisconsin governments.

Weins's support was echoed by the Dairy Farmers of Canada, which said Tuesday it believed the federal government would continue to "defend" the dairy industry.

Trump said in Wisconsin Tuesday that he'll work on a solution.

His comments in Wisconsin suggest private reassurances that Canada would not be targeted during the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement are worthless.

In the letter, released by Ottawa, ambassador David MacNaughton said Canada's dairy industry was less protectionist than its USA counterpart.

Ambassador David MacNaughton said in a letter Tuesday night to the governors of Wisconsin and NY that Canada is aware of their letter to Trump asking him to address Canada's dairy practices. But that leaves farmers with excess protein, which is where ultra-filtered milk comes in.

MacNaughton went on to state dairy farmers globally are facing challenges, including "international pressures of low world prices and a surplus of skim milk solids".

The Laughing Cow, known to Quebecers as La Vache qui Rit, has been "proudly produced" in the Quebec town of Saint-Nicolas Que. since 2007, and is therefore a typical product in Trump's sights.

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, said he likely will be making a call to the Canadian ambassador.

Quebec farmers say they're not anxious about recent comments by U.S. President Donald Trump attacking the way Canada manages the production of dairy products.

"Canada does not accept the contention that Canada's dairy policies are the cause of financial loss for dairy farmers in the United States", MacNaughton said in a letter to the governors of Wisconsin and NY that was released Tuesday night in rebuttal to Trump's surprise criticism of Canada earlier in the day. So they're displacing the US product that's coming into Canada, " said von Massow.

The U.S. -Canadian dispute has spread to Minnesota, where officials say 19 dairy farms are affected, according to The Associated Press.

On Tuesday, Trump told an audience of dairy farmers in Wisconsin that he would stand up for their livelihoods.

- April 13 letter to U.S. President Donald Trump from the National Milk Producers Federation, the U.S. Dairy Export Council, the International Dairy Foods Association and the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture. The United States is Canada's largest trading partner.

It's a polarizing topic among two of the leading Conservative leadership candidates, Maxime Bernier and Steven Blaney, who vehemently disagree over whether Canada's supply management system is fair. He is defending his domestic dairy industry. "I just can't do it", he says.
