Canadian Dairy Farmers Aren't Happy With U.S. Trade Deal. Here's Why

Canada relieved trade deal done won’t forget Trump attacks Canada and US agree last-minute trade deal
Orlando Vargas | 06 October, 2018, 03:39

It was unclear when the new agreement, which Congress must ratify, would take effect.

A deal seemed imminent, worrying those within the USTR who were convinced they weren't yet done, said the source.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his country is in a more stable place now that it has completed a renegotiation of a free trade deal with the United States and Mexico.

Trumka added, "Our history of witnessing unfair trade deals destroy the lives of working families demands the highest level of scrutiny before receiving our endorsement".

Trudeau was quick to embrace the new deal, welcoming it in a late night call with Trump as "a new and modern trade agreement" and that would "bring the countries closer together". Trump acknowledged the relationship did get "a little bit testy" but that the trade deal has smoothed over their differences.

The trade agreement guards new biologic drugs from cheaper generic competition for "at least 10 years", compared with current protection of eight years in Canada and five years in Mexico.

"We will be manufacturing many more cars", Trump said.

"As someone who voted against NAFTA and opposed it for many years, I knew it needed fixing", Mr. Schumer wrote in a statement.

Trump's mistreatment reinforces a worry among Canadians that their much larger neighbor is taking advantage of Canada, Heyman added.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent who sought the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, said that while the plan included "some improvements that could be good for US workers, it lacks enforcement mechanisms that are necessary for these policies to succeed".

It was also "the biggest trade deal in the United States history", he told a press conference. Store owners like Larry Rosen, chief executive of men's clothing chain Harry Rosen, feared it would drive customers to larger US -based online competitors.

More Than a Third of American Adults Eat Fast Food Daily
And among high-income families (those with incomes above 350% of the poverty line), 42% dined on fast food on a typical day. About 38 percent of adults aged 40 to 59 ate fast food daily while just 24 percent of those aged 60 and above did the same.


Once again, President Donald Trump is racing circles around his critics and showing that his tariff policy and the threat of leaving NAFTA altogether were most effective inducements to trade concessions, having resulted in the new U.S. -Mexico-Canada Agreement, or the USMCA.

"Canadians won't forget Trump's disgraceful treatment of Canada". The administration, as well as officials from Canada and Mexico, should be applauded for months of hard work aimed at modernising NAFTA for the 21st century - a goal retailers have shared from the start.

During the 1992 presidential campaign, independent candidate Ross Perot famously predicted a "giant sucking sound" as NAFTA pulled USA factory jobs into Mexico.

It was inevitable that American dairy farmers would get improved access to the Canadian market because the Trudeau government accepted similar provisions to secure a trade agreement with the European Union and the other 10 members of the TPP.

The U.S. made few, if any concessions, while Canada provided more access to its dairy sector and allowed Washington to possibly prevent Canada from reaching a free trade deal with China.

The unveiling of the new deal, called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), sparked analysis of what it means for different industries in each of the affected countries. Some retailers may dislike the big increase in the amount of goods Canadians can bring home from the us without paying duties. Mexico's incoming foreign relations secretary, Marcelo Ebrard, said some new regulations may pose challenges for companies to adapt to.

Any US job gains are likely years away, but the deal provides Trump with a victory that he can tout at campaign rallies over the next month on behalf of fellow Republicans running in the November 6 congressional elections.

"China wants to talk, very badly".

"We look forward to reviewing the text in detail with our members and determining the impact it will have on the highly integrated North American apparel, footwear, and textile supply chain".

I don't think any country would like someone to be in their critical trade negotiations that was not tough.

President Donald Trump credited recent tariffs with the completion of the newly announced US-Canada-Mexico Agreement. "That includes Congress. 'Oh please don't charge tariffs.' Without tariffs, we wouldn't be standing here".
