"There's nothing at the border stopping the dairy industry from the USA exporting to this country, we have to make sure we have a good discussion about trade with the United States, and we have to make sure that it's base on facts", Gallant said.

Earlier Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he will continue to protect Canada's agriculture producers - including its supply management system for dairy - as he tries to engage with the USA administration on a variety of trade irritants.

He also wrote that "technical barriers" make the USA more protectionist than Canada, and his nation isn't a cause of the global oversupply that has hurt American farmers.

There are 218 dairy farms in Nova Scotia, and Damsteegt believes the Canadian system provides a high quality product for consumers.

"The fact is, NAFTA - whether it's Mexico or Canada - is a disaster for our country". "We have repeatedly stressed that trade must be fair and that all countries should be held accountable when they break the rules. They are using us as a scapegoat", said Gerrit Damsteegt, a Shubenacadie dairy farmer and chairman of the Dairy Farmers of Nova Scotia.

But they do represent a marked departure from Trump's warm words for Canada after he met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Washington only two months ago.
