Charm offensive to compensate Canada's dairy farmers

Canada's dairy farmers yesterday discussed with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the risky maneuver of opening the national market to US industry. There were complaints that there are still no details about the promised compensation.
As part of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), Canada had offered the US 3.6% of its milk market. The damage which the dairy industry will incur will be compensated.
After the conversation yesterday in Montreal, the farmers were disappointed with the outcome.
The farmer lobby in the heavily populated states of Ontario and Quebec is influencing the mood of the upcoming federal elections in October 2019. In the years before, the dairy industry already had to make concessions to the European Union and Pacific Pacific nations. All free trade agreements in Canada were at the expense of the dairy industry. That's a big challenge - the government knows that too. But there are no commitments for compensation services.
A charm offensive with large posters is now to highlight the achievements of Canadian dairy farmers and thus ensure that consumers prefer to buy Canadian milk products.
