State lawmaker: Canada doesn't grasp urgency of milk crisis

There are fears among Canadians that they could be hurt as Trump targets Mexico in a re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Meanwhile, Canadian dairy farmers had a lot of leftover, unused high-protein milk product that it could not sell. Daniel Smith, a state agriculture administrator, said 44 of those farms still haven't found alternatives.

"Our federal and state governments can not abide by Canada's disregard for its trade commitment to the United States, and its intentional decision to pursue policies that are choking off sales of American-made milk to the detriment of US dairy farmers", said Tom Vilsack, the former secretary of agriculture and current president and CEO of the US Dairy Export Council, in a statement earlier this month.

After Trump publicly took up their cause on Tuesday, David MacNaughton, Canada's ambassador to the US, released a letter he sent to the governors of Wisconsin and NY rebutting that claim.

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

Tuesday evening, Canada's ambassador to the US sent his own letter to Walker, calling for the governor "not to lay blame where it does not belong".

Trump administration officials vilify JCPOA
The Trump administration has repeatedly said that it is hoping that China will do for Mr. Trump what it has failed to do for past presidents - force concessions from Pyongyang.

In addition, Canada's producers recently got together and lowered their prices for dairy ingredients to make them more competitive against the cheaper American imports.

"I wasn't going to do this, but I was in Wisconsin the other day..."

According to the latest trade statistics reported by the US Census Bureau and the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, exports of goods and services to Canada totaled US $ 321.6 billion in 2016, while imports from here Amounted to US $ 313.5 billion.

"What they're complaining about is 'They're not selling us as much as they used to, '" he said in an interview. When customers in Canada, who have been purchasing milk products from American suppliers for years, suddenly decide to switch to domestic suppliers after Canada implements a major change in milk pricing, it is abundantly clear that the lost business incurred by USA farmers is directly tied to Canada's milk pricing system. And we'll be reporting back sometime over the next two weeks as to NAFTA and what we're going to do about it.

Despite the tough talk, he said the relationship with the new Trump administration has been extremely positive, and his office will continue to work on finding solutions to disputes. The former Harper government held such proposals at bay, but Trudeau campaigned on pushing them, he said.

Dykstra believes it's over-production of milk that's to blame, not Canada.

Herman said that raises the likelihood that supply management will be on the table in future trade negotiations during which the US will try to win an increase for its dairy imports into Canada.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Dairy Farmers of New Brunswick, Paul Gaunce, believes the current trade agreement works well for both Canada and the US, rejecting's Trump's view it's a one-sided deal.

But he said the reality is dairy farmers in the United States, Europe, New Zealand and many other countries are facing hardship because their marketplaces are oversaturated with milk.

The president then broke from a prepared statement to attack Canada's dairy, energy and lumber industries.

"The reality is, there haven't been any changes to Canadian regulations or tariffs", said David Wiens, who milks 220 cows and is chairman of Dairy Farmers of Manitoba.
