Food and Farm-Milk Dispute story

Despite U.S. President Donald Trump's surprise attack on the Canadian dairy industry on Tuesday, dairy farmers in New Brunswick say they have confidence in Canada's supply management system.

A spokeswoman for Canada's dairy industry said Tuesday night there have not been any new taxes on dairy imports. The Ottawa-based Dairy Farmers of Canada, which represents 12,000 farms, is confident the Canadian government will "defend and protect" its dairy industry and the economy, a spokeswoman said by phone. Canada changed its policy on pricing domestic milk to cover more dairy ingredients, leading to lower prices for Canadian products including ultra-filtered milk that compete with USA milk. And our farmers in Wisconsin and New York State are being put out of business, our dairy farmers.

Trump then went on to criticize Canadian policies on lumber and energy, and said that Canada, and not just Mexico, has made the North America Free Trade Agreement a "disaster for our country".

The ambassador also noted that the current dairy trade balance favours the United States five to one - a point he underscored again during a news conference on Wednesday.

"We're also going to stand up for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin", he told a group of supporters at Snap-on Tools.

"It may be true we have a dairy trade surplus with Canada, but it's not true for overall trade", he said.

In the interim, the Canadian government is vigorously pursuing trade agreements with other countries and Wolf applauds it for that.

On Wednesday, MacNaughton downplayed talk of growing trade irritants with the US and said he still expects there will be "constructive discussions" between the two countries because so many jobs on both sides of the border depend on trade.

"President Trump's reaction is not surprising". Decisions are also expected in the coming weeks on duties on Canadian lumber, another instalment of a once-a-decade feud between Canadian and American lumber producers.

Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil said the Atlantic provinces have built a good trading relationship with the New England states and he expects that will continue despite some of the "noise" coming from south of the border.

He responded in a letter that says, "Canada does not accept the contention that Canada's dairy policies are the cause of financial loss for dairy farmers in the United States".

USA unease has been brewing for years over the dairy restrictions, and the issue complicated negotiations of a Trans-Pacific Partnership pact, an unratified 12-nation trade deal that Mr. Trump pulled the US out of in January.

Canada has also fiercely protected its dairy industry in recent trade deals, from the Trans-Pacific Partnership to Ceta, the Canada-European Union deal.

"Canada needs to prepare for any eventuality and be ready to vigorously defend Canadian interests, but overreacting to the president's rhetoric would be a mistake", said Roland Paris, professor of worldwide affairs at University of Ottawa and Mr. Trudeau's former foreign-policy adviser.

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

Governor Scott Walker is urging President Trump to address Canada's dairy trade restrictions.

They also asked Trump to direct US agencies to "examine a full range of tools that could be used immediately to impress upon Canada in a concrete way the importance of dependable, two-way trade".
