'It's like a death by a thousand cuts': Manitoba dairy farmers react to new trade agreement

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he has assured dairy farmers they will be compensated for their expected losses under the new United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.
Canadian dairy farmers stand to lose 3.59 per cent of their market to US producers under the new trade deal, known as USMCA. "I'm concerned about the effects on dairy because our region has a large dairy industry, certainty in Temiskaming as well as Timmins", said MP Charlie Angus (NDP - Timmins-James Bay). There are deeper issues in the dairy industry that a trade deal won't fix, chiefly the global milk glut and a declining demand. Under the USMCA, Canada has agreed to eliminate this program in order to level the playing field between the US and Canada while allowing local dairy producers the ability to expand sales overseas. "That agreement will affect Canadian jobs I think in the long term".

We also now have access to an additional 3.6 percent of Canada's dairy market, which is better still than what we would have achieved under TPP. Some will wind up in teas; some will end up in yogurt.
The deal also slaps a levy on any Canadian exports of Class 7 milk products over a certain threshold, effectively limiting companies' access to foreign markets. "We have a lot of cows, and we have a lot of cows producing milk".
"Canadian dairy farmers will now be paid less for their milk as processors import product from the states".
Exports that had grown to $102 million skidded to a halt at a time when America's dairy industry, then in its third consecutive year of low prices, was losing money and farms.
