Walker: White House must deal with Canada's dairy policies

More than 70 dairy producers in both Wisconsin and NY are affected.

Tuesday, in a speech to Wisconsin workers, he singled out the dairy industry as a prime example of that disaster, saying that Canada's supply management system, where government regulations ensure that the supply never exceeds the demand, amounts to a "one-sided deal" that benefits only Canada.

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

Trump says "unfair things" have happened in Canada to US dairy farmers. Canada's policy change to manipulate internal prices to export more dairy ingredients globally is of great concern to other nations beyond just the United States.

Cuomo and Walker wrote that roughly 70 NY dairy farmers and millions of dollars in sales have been impacted by new Canadian regulations that target imports of ultra-filtered milk, which is used to make cheese and yogurt. "But hopefully Canada, feeling the heat, will act before then".

"The fact is, NAFTA - whether it's Mexico or Canada - is a disaster for our country".

Trudeau said he wants to have a fact-based conversation with the Americans, noting the USA - like other countries - subsidizes its dairy and agriculture industries to the tune of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars.

"Canada does not accept the contention that Canada's dairy policies are the cause of financial loss for dairy farmers in the United States", Canada's envoy to Washington, David MacNaughton, said in a letter to the governors of NY and Wisconsin. "Canada buys more from the USA than any other country - including the EU, Mexico, China and Japan", wrote Alex Lawrence in an emailed statement.

Champagne will be joined by Finance Minister Bill Morneau; their Chinese counterpart will be Vice Premier Wang Yang, who is also China's point man on relations with the United States.

It has no plans to change course, no matter how hard the USA president tries to rock the boat.

The President told his audience Canada had been "very unfair" to US dairy farmers. "We urge USDA to assist us in our efforts to help our producers by exercising its authority to purchase cheese and butter in storage and distribute it through USDA's nutritional aid programs, including food banks and our national school programs". Production kicked into gear long after NAFTA came into effect, in 1994, so it's not subject to the same high tariffs as other types of milk.

Trump delivered his strongest-ever broadside at America's northern neighbour, piling atop his complaints earlier in the week about Canadian dairy and adding fresh gripes for good measure - this time about energy and lumber. Russian Federation is buying less milk from the Europe because of sanctions, and China is buying less milk, which affects everybody.

Henderson, whose family has operated a dairy farm in the Ventnor area since 1868, said supply-management allows Canadian dairy farmers to compete against their subsidized American counterparts. It had been duty-free since the first NAFTA agreement first took effect in 1994, but the federal government changed the rules after dairy farmers in Ontario complained about prices.
