Canada Dairy Industry: New NAFTA a Bad Outcome

05 October 2018

But Dan Ujczo, an global trade lawyer with the USA firm Dickinson Wright, said it would only apply to a very small percentage of vehicles that don't comply with the origin rules.

While dairy producers got most of the attention, the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement trade deal will give the USA a good chunk of our egg, chicken and turkey market too.

Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Jim Holte said state farmers welcome the new agreement with open arms.

The deal will preserve a trade dispute settlement mechanism that Canada fought hard to maintain to protect its lumber industry and other sectors from USA anti-dumping tariffs, United States and Canadian officials said.

But Trump had threatened to leave Canada out of the trade deal altogether if an agreement could not be reached by midnight Sunday, confronting Trudeau with the prospect of broader disruptions to the Canadian economy.

"This has happened, despite assurances that our government would not sign a bad deal for Canadians", it said.

"Protecting our auto industry was one of the core concerns that Canadians had about getting to a deal, and we're glad to say that we have significant protections". "[U.S. President Donald] Trump has turned the absurdity of American dairy, a system that needs reform to survive, into a talking point to help Republicans in the upcoming byelection".

Higgins says Ohio's dairy industry is considered the 11th largest in the United States, and first in the nation when it comes to the production of Swiss cheese.

The Canadian Dairy Commission did not respond to a request for comment about how the new deal may impact consumer prices. The program saturated the worldwide market with subsidized skim milk powder and cut the demand from Canadian cheesemakers for ultra-filtered milk from the U.S. USMCA will include the development of new safeguards to prevent major export increases for certain dairy products. Growth has been small, he said, but there's a broader range of product now than 15 years ago.

"For us here in Hamilton we're sort of halfway there", he said. "There's no doubt about that. Supply management has been sacrificed". "They tariff dairy very heavily going into their country to where it's virtually impossible to export any dairy into Canada".

The Canadian government has promised compensation to dairy farmers affected by the USMCA, but Sargent said his family isn't interested in handouts.

The new agreement between the Trump Administration and Canada will allow the United States to increase dairy exports to that country. Then, to protect those high prices, the federal government slaps strict controls on imports of foreign-made dairy.

Some beef industry leaders fear they may lose out under the new deal.

The coastal area of SC features hundreds of inlets while North Carolina has barrier islands miles away from the mainland. Hurricane Florence has already proven to be not just powerful and destructive but wildly unpredictable.

"At a minimum we haven't lost any ground".

Recent discussions around trade and USA pork have not been very optimistic of late.

"We certainly have taken a hit", Brown added.

"Progress was made on the dispute settlement mechanisms", the statement said, but they still concentrate power in the big corporations.

Prior to the agreement, several lawmakers had warned of not supporting a deal without Canada.

It was late Sunday night that Canada and US came to an agreement in the NAFTA trade negotiations.

It's essentially status quo for Saskatchewan's major exports into the US, including oil, potash, uranium, canola and wheat.
