Canadian PM responds to Trump's criticism of dairy industry

Posted April 24, 2017

That new policy means many dairy farmers will have to find other places to sell their milk and fast.

Ben Loewith, a third-generation dairy farmer, says that America's real problem is that they're making too much milk and have no where to put it.

Isn't it standard operating procedure for Canada, with its history of knee pads and lip balm diplomacy towards the USA, to "milk" our great neighbour? "And that also includes what's happening along our northern border states with Canada, having to do with lumber and timber".

The Spaniard won eight consecutive titles in the Principality, from 2005 to 2012, and added a ninth title past year . The Spaniard is second on the all-time list, after Djokovic (30 ), and ahead of Federer (26) and Andy Murray (14).

The U.S. president took aim at Canada's dairy industry this week for creating a new lower-priced classification of milk product that he argues hurts U.S. producers. Schumer's spokesman said Trump made the call. "It is critical to level the playing field for our hard-working dairy farmers and make sure our Canadian neighbors rescind their unfair policy and again play by the rules". He said they can always look to improve the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"Americans of all stripes have had long-standing issues with our supply management, and we actually did a tweak on the dairy [policy] last year and this year which effected some of these exports of unfiltered milk into Canada", he said.

Trump, while in Kenosha, Wis., on Tuesday spoke out against the "very, very unfair policy" that is blocking USA exports of ultra-filtered milk, which is used to make cheese.

Trump said this week he would make "some very big changes" to the NAFTA treaty with Canada and Mexico or "we are going to get rid of NAFTA for once and for all".

Trudeau is anxious about Trump's protectionist talk and has repeatedly sent his ministers to the talk about the importance of the trade relationship. The file has always been a contentious one, with Canada largely fending off NAFTA challenges launched by the United States alleging Parliament Hill's policies essentially act as a subsidy for domestic producers.
