The Conservative Convention and Max Bernier
On the marketing board we need it! It is a tariff on imports of dairy from the US. If we did not have that in place and allowed US dairy into Canada unchallenged, we would lose our EU trade agreement which, is what the Cons and Trump want. Harper got kicked out of all the EU and Asian trade talks, which was either by design or incompetence. No one could be that unlucky!
The US has no controls on the use of Antibiotics and Growth hormone in their animals. Ingesting their milk or their meats could make a person immune to the effects our perscribed medications may offer us. It is a health issue!
Why would Trump be worked up over the Canadian market on dairy which is smaller than any of his states except perhaps Alaska?
He does not want any oppositon by Canada at any trade agreement!
It is part of his attack on institutions in general.
