Trump promises 'big changes' or withdrawal from NAFTA, slams TPA rules

What's in a name? Canada civil service tests name-blind hiring

Canada's policy change has led to lower prices for Canadian products including ultra-filtered milk that compete with the US product.

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

Trump said this week he would make "some very big changes" to the NAFTA treaty with Canada and Mexico or "we are going to get rid of NAFTA for once and for all".

The issue, which was exacerbated last week after a Wisconsin-based dairy processor that supplies Canadian customers said it'd stop buying milk from more than 70 USA farms, revolves around what's called "ultra-filtered milk" that companies use in cheese and other dairy products.

On Tuesday, Trump told an audience of dairy farmers in Wisconsin that he would stand up for their livelihoods.

MacNaughton backed the organization's position that Canada has done nothing to block USA imports, and that the predicament is the result of an "over-saturated" market that has led to lower prices.

He said the facts don't bear that out and attached a U.S. Department of Agriculture dairy outlook report that "clearly indicates the poor results in the U.S. sector are due U.S. and global overproduction". He said both he and Ottawa would continue to speak out for Canadian interests when necessary, and expects USA politicians to do the same.

U.S. President Donald Trump promised on Tuesday to defend American dairy farmers who have been hurt by Canada's protectionist trade practices, during a visit to the cheese-making state of Wisconsin.

"I do feel our country right now...really gets that this is a critical moment", Freeland said.

"It may be true we have a dairy trade surplus with Canada, but it's not true for overall trade", he said. "It's a new USA administration with some openly protectionist views".

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Turning back to the economic populism that helped drive his election campaign, President Donald Trump signed an order Tuesday he said should help American workers whose jobs are threatened by skilled immigrants. "A protracted dispute will only drive up the cost of wood and homes for USA consumers".

But MacNaughton said there is too much at stake to let anything interfere with trade between the two countries. Lumber was excluded from NAFTA and its predecessor, the Canada-U.S.

He also threatened to terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement if no action is taken to correct the problem.

Trump's decision to single out Energy seemed unusual, however. China made up less than 3 percent of US steel imports.

Softwood lumber is a long-standing irritant between Canada and the U.S. The two sides are working on a new agreement to replace the nine-year truce that expired in 2015.

The pricing agreement was a response to growing US exports of milk proteins to Canada that missed Canada's high tariffs.

But she insists that on dairy, Canada is in compliance with both NAFTA and the World Trade Organization rules.

Clarke Gourlay loves his cows and gives them the TLC they need to produce the best milk possible.But his operation at Morningstar Farm and Little Qualicum Cheeseworks in Parksville is also high tech including a milking machine the cows literally line up to get into 24 hours a day.
