  • Trump and Trudeau agree on a revised NAFTA deal

Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative applauded the announcement of the new United States Mexico-Canada agreement (USMCA) especially with the elimination of the Class 7 milk price, which allowed Canadian milk producers to undercut the price of U.S producers.

The Trump administration's focus on autos was in part to address the flight of jobs to Mexico, but also the president's repeated complaints about the US trade deficit with Mexico and other countries.

Patrick Leblond, a University of Ottawa trade expert, said it doesn't give the US a veto over Canada's trade policy. US President Donald Trump imposed taxes on imports from Mexico and Canada, and the two countries retaliated.

The free-trade groups said withdrawal from NAFTA prior to ratification and implementation of USMCA "would trigger devastating negative economic consequences for our country".

President Trump, however, says he is not hopeful the next deal will be approved by Congress in the next year, saying 2020 election politics could hold up passage.

As talks came down to the wire, Lighthizer encountered resistance on Capitol Hill to approving a deal that didn't include Canada.

"My read of it is that it's exactly the same language that we've had for 30 years, yet digital products are new and there's no mention of them in the exemption", Lilly, who previously advised Stephen Harper on trade issues, said Monday. "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's more about the outcomes and the implications, I think, for most people", he said. "Similarly, unless the Mexican government adopts new labor laws that meet their constitutional requirements and the new criteria of this NAFTA, then the fundamental flaw of the original pact will remain unresolved, American jobs will continue to migrate south, and this union must therefore withhold our unconditional support", Hoffa said.
