Trudeau defends supply management, wants 'fact' based trade talk with US

Ellis Copeland | 25 April, 2017, 13:34

U.S. President Donald Trump launched his hardest rebuke of Canada since taking office on Thursday, blasting the country for "taking advantage" of American workers and promising future trade reforms. "It's a disaster. It's a trading disaster", said Trump in the Oval Office. Now, U.S. dairy exports are down, with more than $150 million in losses that have impacted 75 family farms in the past year.

"I want to just add - I wasn't going to do this, but I was in Wisconsin the other day, and I want to end by saying that Canada, what they've done to our dairy farm workers is a disgrace".

Trump, a critic of NAFTA, has called Canada's dairy pricing plan "very unfair".

Trudeau made his remarks prior to Trump's latest anti-Canadian invective, in which the USA president again called out Canada - this time from the Oval Office - as "a disgrace" for hurting American dairy farmers.

Freeland also said that Canada provides the USA with 43 per cent of its imported crude oil, and that the two countries' energy relationship "creates tens of thousands of jobs" on both sides of the border.

Trump said in Wisconsin Tuesday that he'll work on a solution. -Canada dispute over milk, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Canada had begun imposing import taxes on US ultra-filtered milk.

"The U.S. has a $400 million dairy surplus with Canada so it's not Canada that's the challenge here", he told Bloomberg.

"Let's not pretend that we're in a global free market when it comes to agriculture", he said in Toronto.

In this context, it remains to be hoped that President Trump's negotiators assigned to the reopening and renegotiation of NAFTA will ignore their boss's prejudices.

"Dairy trade between Canada and the USA massively favors the US, by a ratio of five to one", she said. "It's a new USA administration with some openly protectionist views, and I do feel we have a strong, Team Canada approach that is serving us well", Freeland said.

The Canadian government has defended its pricing program and attributed the losses reported by USA producers to global overproduction.

Signing his executive order to probe foreign threats to the USA steel industry, the president called his perceived trade imbalance with Canada as "a disgrace".

But Easter noted that the US has a lot invested in trade with Canada.

Lumber has been a trade irritant between the two nations for generations, so it's little surprise it would be singled out by Trump.

And as for oil, she described the stable supply from Canada as a job-creating lifeblood of the US economy.

Trump's decision to single out Energy seemed unusual, however.

President Trump has attacked Canada's new milk-production system as "a disgrace" that's living on borrowed time.

"I think that's one of the things we're seeing with this administration is, quite often, there will be statements made that only contain part of the whole story", says Bonnett, Canadian Federation of Agriculture president. Almost 70 dairy producers were affected after imposing of this taxes in both the USA and Canada. About 70 dairy producers in both Wisconsin and NY are reportedly affected by the new policy.
