Canada: Trump is wrong when he says dairy practices unfair

"Dairy farmers should not have their businesses ruined and lives upended as a result of this unfair trade practice".

Mr. Trump also signed an executive order tightening federal exemptions to "Buy American" policies, which compel the government to use the services of US instead of foreign firms.

"I don't expect there would be many countries that would do anything other than support a WTO action against Canada", said Australian Dairy Farmers interim Chief Executive Officer John McQueen in a telephone call.

"So the Americans are not suffering from the current terms of NAFTA and existing trade agreements". They traveled recently to Mexico City with the U.S. Daily Export Council to reinforce its commitment to the country.

But she said the Buy American push could have some positive impacts on B.C. The policies target exports of ultra-filtered milk. The order also specifically promises to bolster American steel, which could affect cross-border infrastructure projects.

"It's corn and soy also that go down there so our huge trading partner and we need that market". Canadians have rebuked those claims, arguing the United States produces too much milk in a global market already saturated with it. "It's a awful thing that happened to the farmers of Wisconsin".

Specific trade spats such as that one, along with more systemic complaints such as supply management, may come up during NAFTA negotiations. "Further communications with the Canadian government will broaden his perspective". In February - and after months of warnings from NY and federal lawmakers - Canada moved forward with a policy that makes it more hard for US dairy producers to sell their products across the border.
