Canada softwood industry seeks China sales, as Trump widens trade attack

Malita Javier | 21 Abril, 2017, 20:34

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met U.S. President Donald Trump's pointed criticism of Canada's dairy industry Thursday with calm counterarguments in defence of how Canada prefers to manage its milk.

"Canada does not accept the contention that Canada's dairy policies are the cause of financial loss for dairy farmers in the United States", MacNaughton said.

Trump said Tuesday that a trade dispute with Canada has left dairy farmers in Wisconsin and NY without a market they had for their product. And our farmers in Wisconsin and New York State are being put out of business, our dairy farmers.

He said lumber, timber and energy were also included in those abuses. Trump's comments came shortly after he received a letter from Gov. Scott Walker and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who urged the president to take action after Canada's sudden change in dairy pricing policy resulted in almost 100 Wisconsin dairy farms being dropped from their suppliers. Trump says Canada has been "very, very unfair".

Trump was amplifying the complaints of Wisconsin and NY governors, who say Canada's decision to create a new lower-priced, classification of milk product has frozen US producers out of the Canadian market.

Governor Scott Walker is urging President Trump to address Canada's dairy trade restrictions.

Trump also reiterated his threat to eliminate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico if it can not be changed. The free trade accord slashed a slew of tariffs but left many dairy industry tariffs in place.

A 1960s trade law gives the president authority to restrict imports if they are determined to be harmful to US security interests.

It also harkens back to the USA election campaign trail, when Trump regularly lashed out at specific industries, and even individual companies, and decried NAFTA as one of the worst deals ever made.

During a speech in Kenosha on Tuesday, President Trump called the situation "very unfair" to Wisconsin farmers and said his plan was to "call Canada" and work out a solution.

He said he expects three-way talks on the trade agreement, but said there would be a number of ongoing bilateral talks on issues that affect Canada and the US, but not Mexico.

"The national ingredient strategy is industry-driven and was developed between dairy producers and processors", he said.

According to the Belgium-based World Steel Association, American-made steel once accounted for roughly 20 percent of global production, but had slipped to less than 5 percent by 2015.

"We're going to have to get to the negotiating table with Canada very, very quickly", he added.

Trudeau said he wants to have a fact-based conversation with the Americans, noting the US - like other countries - subsidizes its dairy and agriculture industries to the tune of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars.

Francois Dumontier, a spokesman for Les Producteurs de lait du Quebec, said imports of USA milk products have increased since 1993 and now account for three-quarters of milk products in Canada.

"Canada. what they've done to our dairy farm workers is a disgrace". "(I feel) he gravely lacks any depth or understanding of our fair farm pricing system (but) I'm not alarmed by his posturing".

Canada has regularly said it's willing to renegotiate NAFTA and that certain parts of the pact could use an update.
