Canadian dairy farmers are panning the renegotiated trade pact between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, saying the deal will undercut the industry by limiting exports and opening up the market to more American products.
[...] the newly minted U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, or USMCA, will grant greater market access to the domestic dairy market and eliminate competitive dairy classes, which the group says will shrink the Canadian industry.
The lobby group says the measures will have “a dramatic impact not only for dairy farmers but for the whole sector,” adding that it fails “to see how this deal can be good for the 220,000 Canadian families that depend on dairy for their livelihood.”
Canadians have been laughing at Trump for his horrible tariffs -- don't you know that free trade is super awesome, you doofus! Now, that the US is opening up the North American market (free trade FTW!), the Canadians are now crying. It's surreal to see so many people pontificate about FREE TRADE while simultaneously support protectionism.
Anyway, it's kind of funny that Canada comes last in the name. Also, every time I see that acronym, my mind starts saying United States Marine Corps Aaaa ...
