After almost giving Canada a reason to be complacent about the sting of new trade policies since his election, President Donald Trump seems to have the Canadian farming, lumber and energy sectors in his cross hairs as he takes aim once again at NAFTA.
He called what Canada has done to U.S. dairy farmers a disgrace.
He said that the U.S. couldn’t allow Canada to take advantage of what they have done to U.S. workers and farmers by not giving them access to the Canadian market.
In returning to his campaign mantra that NAFTA is a disaster for the U.S., Mr. Trump has now added energy and lumber to his rant.
But in the end, the easy pickings will be the dairy and poultry business, which could signal the end of supply management here in Canada, opening up competition for poultry, eggs and dairy; a benefit to all consumers.
