Quebec farmers uncowed by Trump's criticism of supply management

Following Trump's remarks, the Canadian government has reached out to both the NY and Wisconsin governments. Daniel Smith, a state agriculture administrator, said 44 of those farms still haven't found alternatives.

Trump's commitment came Tuesday after Grassland Dairy Products dropped dozens of Wisconsin farmers after losing sales to Canada.

"Canada, what they've done to our dairy farm workers, it's a disgrace", Trump said.

In their April 13 letter, the four USA dairy organizations urged Trump to call Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to halt the Class 7 program, saying it was "specifically created to stop an important US dairy export to Canada".

"President Trump has had some pretty vocal and strong stances on things that he has walked back on, and, you know, I don't know if trade is going to be one of those as well".

Canada Wood, an industry trade group, said earlier this month it would "take the first steps to extend its reach to Wuhan, which is the economic engine of central China", by establishing a joint Sino-Canadian Modern Wood Construction Technology Center in the little-known Chinese city of more than 10 million.

"For all sorts of reasons, we're striking while the opportunity is ripe, to showcase, to take companies with us to promote them", said the official, who wasn't authorized to publicly discuss details of the trip.

"It's not going to be happening for long", Trump said in a state, that with NY, exports much of the ultra-filtered milk used in cheesemaking.

"For being the Dairy State, that's not going to look good if we're dumping milk down the drain, or out in the fields", he said, "instead of producing it for cheese and milk". The former Harper government held such proposals at bay, but Trudeau campaigned on pushing them, he said.

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

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

Canada's supply management system works well, Dumontier says, keeping prices and supply stable without the need for subsidies.

Canada quickly sought to re-establish the "facts" after US President Donald Trump's attack on Canadian milk producers on Tuesday. He prefaced them by saying, "I wasn't going to do this", then launched into complaints about Canadian dairy, wood, and energy and its impact on the U.S.

"It's good that Trump is now finally aware that they are very protectionist of the agricultural industry within Canada", Ellis said.

In return, Ellis said the Canadian Dairy Commission has promised to provide cheap milk for production.
