Pence attacks China on 'predatory' trade, 'coercion' and military 'aggression'

"The announced concessions on dairy in the new USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement) deal demonstrates once again that the Canadian government is willing to sacrifice our domestic dairy production when it comes time to make a deal", said Pierre Lampron, president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), in an October 1 news release.

The newly minted U.S. -Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, or USMCA, will grant an expanded 3.6% market access to the domestic dairy market and eliminate competitive dairy classes, which will shrink the Canadian industry, according to a statement by Dairy Famers of Canada.

"Anything that's going to increase demand is going to be a plus, but I guess the one thing I can say, with that being said, there is still an global surplus of milk that is just tremendous", said Dave Balbian, the area dairy specialist for Cornell Cooperative Extension of Otsego and Schoharie Counties.

Reed has been an unrelenting advocate to level the scales of trade for the dairy industry going back to 2013. "They told me they felt they have continued to give through a number of trade deals we have signed and they are right", Trudeau said after the meeting. "That agreement will affect Canadian jobs I think in the long term".

There is no other way to interpret this than as an agreement by Mexico and Canada not to sign a free-trade deal with China in the near future. He said this could mean a healthier dairy economy throughout the Midwest.

US dairy farmers will now have access to a 3.6 percent share of Canada's tightly controlled dairy market.

"It's not whole milk that they ship". These provisions allow Canada, Mexico and the United States to challenge one another's anti-dumping and countervailing duties in front of a panel of representatives from each country. Some will wind up in teas; some will end up in yogurt.

"There won't be any immediate impacts but if an American product is coming into Canada, it's going to shrink the market that we have to sell our milk in".

McConnell nixes Democrats’ request for Federal Bureau of Investigation briefing on Kavanaugh probe
I don't know. "I wish he hadn't had done it", Flake told NBC's Savannah Guthrie on " Today ", adding, "It's kind of appalling". The investigation is set to last one week as part of a bipartisan agreement reached by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"We need to produce milk with no anti-biotics", said Nick Bokma.

Mexico's exports to the U.S. were 28 per cent of its gross domestic product a year ago while Canada's were 19 per cent of GDP.

Supply management works in two ways.

Jerry Bos and his wife Kaitlyn are first generation dairy farmers. As a result, Canadian specialty stores are constantly short of Gouda, mascarpone and a galaxy of other dairy products. "The government has said repeatedly that it values a strong and vibrant dairy sector - they have once again put that in jeopardy by giving away more concessions".

It is impossible to know how successfully or effectively Canada and Mexico used the China card in their negotiating strategies, but clearly they had no incentive to bet on the Chinese at the expense of the Americans.

If the tariff-for-tariff tradeoff between the United States and China resembles a mere scuffle, multinational investment bank J.P. Morgan expects it to escalate into a full-blown trade war.

Dermot Hayes, an agriculture economics professor at Iowa State University, said that once Congress passes the deal, Trump could potentially remove tariffs on Mexican and Canadian metals.

"We will not be intimidated", Pence said of the operation, the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing's efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters.
