Dairy industry to benefit from new trade agreement

Dairy industry to benefit from new trade agreement

Vancouver Island dairy farmers are dismayed that Canada is giving up a chunk of its dairy-market share to American competitors. WSDF will be preparing questions to ask the congressional delegation regarding how Canada is going to dismantle the class 7 pricing, what is being done with the surplus milk, how the agreement is structured and what is included in the increased Canadian market access.

The trade deal with Canada follows an agreement last month between the USA and Mexico, which eliminated some tariffs on goods traded between the two countries.

Jerry Bos and his wife Kaitlyn are first generation dairy farmers.

Ken Neumann, national director of United Steelworkers, discusses why the union feels betrayed by Ottawa's inability to tackle US metal tariffs that still remain despite the negotiation of a revamped NAFTA. Automakers are under pressure to build more cars where workers earn decent wages.

Canada, Mexico and the United States recently finalized a sweeping new trade deal after several months of tense negotiations. Brackenhurst is milking about 100 cows and has close to 220 animals on the farm.

China's Defense Ministry said a Chinese naval ship had been sent to warn the US vessel to leave and that Beijing had irrefutable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and the waters around them. Trudeau's foreign minister defended the deal in her response.

Pence also criticized what he said was China's theft of US technology and urged Google to immediately end development of its "Dragonfly" app that would make it easier to track someone's internet searches.

There are deeper issues in the dairy industry that a trade deal won't fix, chiefly the global milk glut and a declining demand. The dairy industry has the latest and greatest on display today, but dairy farmers are still facing their fourth straight year of low milk prices. This is especially so after his earlier decisions to withdraw United States participation from deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership; launch new trade sanctions against world powers from the European Union to China; and also threaten U.S. withdrawal from the World Trade Organization. "I can't speculate on when that will happen, but we're confident that we will get over that hurdle".

"Any of us that have invested in new barns to meet the needs of the Canadian consumer are not going to be able to fill those barns because the market is gone", says Paul Gaunce. It has been traded off and we are supposed to adjust to that.

He said: "China is meddling in America's democracy".

Taylor, of the family-owned Viewfield Farms in Courtenay, said the farm milks 130 cows and supports local businesses.

Aside from the concessions affecting the dairy industry, Angus said he liked how Canada maintained Chapter 19 and 20 provisions.

Darigold President and CEO Stan Ryan said in a statement that the new agreement would preserve and expand the partnership with Mexico while also enhancing access to the Canadian market.

The vice president cited U.S. intelligence agencies but offered no evidence to back up his claims, which are likely to inflame relations between Washington and Beijing, already at their lowest point in years thanks to the burgeoning trade war, policy differences and United States allegations of political interference. "I guess there's a silver lining, saying the system is still intact, but I always feel it is compromised when you chip away at it more and more like that".
