Strident Trump targets Canadian trade on energy, lumber, dairy files

President Donald Trump singled out Canadian dairy industry trade practices on Thursday, bashing America's northern neighbor for their rules on imported dairy products. On energy, the current NAFTA guarantees the US a fixed rate of Canada's oil production without any import fees.

Reint Dykstra, a dairy farmer of 30 years in Salisbury, is used to hearing comments such as Trump's, saying Canada's supply management system - which regulates production of dairy, as well as chickens, turkeys and eggs by using a quota system and fixed prices, created to ensure farmers stay in business - is often the subject of trade fears. When customers in Canada, who have been purchasing milk products from American suppliers for years, suddenly decide to switch to domestic suppliers after Canada implements a major change in milk pricing, it is abundantly clear that the lost business incurred by US farmers is directly tied to Canada's milk pricing system. "Canada can support its industry without intentionally using policy tools to harm USA dairy farmers and world dairy markets".

The specific program in question is the National Ingredients Strategy, a type of pricing program that gives incentives for Canadian dairy processors that steer them away from purchasing US dairy products. The root of the problem, the issue that we're dealing with, is an over supply of milk.I say 'Mr.

"Canada, what they've done to our dairy farm workers, is a disgrace".

"New York's dairy farms are essential to the strength of our agricultural economy, and these regulations are already having a devastating effect on our dairy farmers and their families", Gov. Cuomo said in a statement.

While Trump also used the Wisconsin speech to criticize NAFTA, Dumontier says that the amount of milk imported to Canada from the United States has increased to 149,000 tonnes from 24,000 tonnes.

Tillerson is also likening Iran's behavior to that of North Korea. "It is their habit to unsettle people and nations", Tillerson said.

And our farmers in Wisconsin and New York State are being put out of business, our dairy farmers.

"By virtue of economic weight alone, Trump has the overwhelming leverage to force open the protected Canadian dairy sector", said Canadian trade lawyer Larry Herman. "We're going to have to get to the negotiating table with Canada very, very quickly".

"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 wrote in a letter to the governors of Wisconsin and NY that was released Tuesday night, after Trump's criticism. "That hasn't happened yet", said Schumer, who added dairy-specific actions would come by this summer.

Relations with the USA are crucial as more than 75 percent of Canada's exports go to the US, while 18 percent of US exports go to Canada.

"As politicians we're very much trained to say something and stick with it".

Dykstra said the US has increased its dairy exports to Canada by 17 per cent over the last few years. "It's a disgrace", Trump bluntly stated during a ceremony in the Oval Office. The U.S. industry told Trump that was a "direct violation" of Canada's trade commitments to the U.S.
