Along with key gains in the USMCA, Canada's unions raise concern

Canada's dairy industry says the concessions show Canada is "willing to sacrifice our domestic dairy production when it comes time to make a deal".

Compared to overall production in the US, the increased access to Canadian customers is "tiny", not even enough to meet annual growth in American production, he said.

News of the agreement was also lauded by Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister, who congratulated the federal government on achieving a new deal with the United States and Mexico.

"Agricultural exports support thousands of jobs in California, both in rural areas where crops and commodities are grown and packed, and in urban centers from which products are marketed and shipped", Johansson said.

Canada's new trade deal with the United States and Mexico is not siting well with one local dairy producer.

Bullard said the labeling system is deceptive to consumers who think they're purchasing a USA -made product.

MARK STEPHENSON: Canada began to produce more skim milk powder under this Class 7 and sell that product overseas. Dekker believes that means it is not truly a free-trade deal. Wisconsin dairy farmer Mark Heinze lost his milk buyer past year because of Canada's move. With the new deal, none of the countries that are part of the agrement will be able to import as many parts from overseas, and Robertson says this could make it hard for vehicle companies to keep consumer prices down. Prime Minister Trudeau left a late evening cabinet meeting Sunday declaring that it is "a good day for Canada" and telling reporters in Ottawa "I'll talk to you guys tomorrow" about the reported NAFTA agreement with the US.

But he said he'll need more information to determine if it will have a tangible impact on overall demand and prices, noting the lack of reaction this week from the US milk market.

That's what Cowichan-Malahat-Langford MP Alistair MacGregor told the House of Commons with regards to the new trade deal with the US and Mexico.

"We do need to see overall increased prices to our producers, or they're not going to be in business", Nobis said.

Monroe says the USA pork sector has been in expansion mode but the uncertainty we've seen around exports over the past year has inhibited investments.

Dairy was a big sticking point for Canadian and United States officials as they renegotiated NAFTA. "We fail to see how this deal can be good for the 220,000 Canadian families that depend on dairy for their livelihood". But he says fixing trade with Canada won't really help make his financial situation better. "So, we're not interested in that", he said. "It sure seems that the Americans and Donald Trump are more interested in looking after agriculture in their industry than the Canadian government is looking after, particularly the dairy industry in Canada", said Haasen. Though, they argue that the policies are needed to compete with other countries that also protect their dairy farmers.

Despite his praise for the deal, he cautioned that we are not at the finish line yet, as the agreement still needs to be ratified by all three countries.
