Minnesota dairy farms affected by US-Canada trade dispute

President Donald Trump talks about an executive memorandum on investigation of steel imports that he was about to sign, Thursday, April 20, 2017, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington.

Trump also took the opportunity to slam NAFTA, the free trade deal linking the US, Mexico and Canada, calling it a "disaster for our country". -Canada trade dispute, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Canada had recently imposed duties on ultra-filtered milk.

Michael von Massow, a food economics expert at University of Guelph, says it is the market forces of the global dairy industry, not Canadian policy, that are driving hard-working USA farmers out of business.

Trump suggested he would have more details to share within a couple of weeks about his government's plans for the North American Free Trade Agreement - but signalled clearly in the meantime that he intends to play hardball. In the US there's no limit to how much milk is produced. Critics, like Conservative Party leadership candidate Maxime Bernier, who has called it a cartel, say the system has artificially increased the price of dairy, chicken and eggs.

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

"We've lowered our prices in response the the market, the worldwide market so that the big producers in Canada would be able to buy Canadian mild and feel good about it" Gourlay told CHEK News.

In his letter to the governors of Wisconsin and New York, MacNaughton argues that Canada is not responsible for the dairy industry's southward borders, based on a report by the US Department of Agriculture (United States Department of Agriculture).

"We'll get together and call Canada and say, 'What happened?'" Trump pledged.

François Dumontier, a spokesperson for Les Producteurs de lait du Québec, says that while Trump condemned the supply management system on Tuesday, he may have actually been talking about a separate issue.

While Dumontier says he's confident the Canadian government will support milk producers, he'll be following Trump's position on NAFTA and supply management closely.

However, in order to be overly cautious, we are going to be proactively replacing these parts to ensure that no issues arise. Tesla says the fault is related to a "small gear" which "could have been manufactured improperly" by a third-party supplier.

"I spent time with some of the farmers in Wisconsin, and, as you know, rules, regulations, different things have changed". Schumer said in a statement.

He attached a February 17 report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that he said showed the American industry's woes were the result of "U.S. and global overproduction" of milk. "We can't wait and make this part of a long NAFTA negotiation".

Dykstra believes it's over-production of milk that's to blame, not Canada. He prefaced them by saying, "I wasn't going to do this", then launched into complaints about Canadian dairy, wood, and energy and its impact on the U.S.

US President Donald Trump has delivered another broadside against Canada and this one is the most sweeping yet.
