Canada dairy farmers unhappy after meeting Trudeau on trade deal

Saint-Henri-de-Taillon que. THE CANADIAN PRESS  Jacques Boissinot

In a major policy speech at the Hudson Institute, a top American think-tank, Pence said that more journalists are reporting the truth without fear or favour, and digging deep to find where China is interfering in American society.

"Canada and Mexico are the first and third largest export markets for US agriculture, accounting for more than a quarter of all USA agriculture exports", said Dan Kowalski, vice president of CoBank's Knowledge Exchange Division. "They told me they felt they have continued to give through a number of trade deals they've signed, and they're right".

Noting that Beijing is also cracking down on Buddhism, Pence said over the past decade, more than 150 Tibetan Buddhist monks have lit themselves on fire to protest China's repression of their beliefs and culture. The implied probability of the central bank raising rates 25 basis points to 1.75 per cent at the October 24 meeting stood at 96.5 per cent as of Friday at 1:40 p.m. ET, a jump from 90 per cent a week earlier, two days before the deal was announced. China retaliated by imposing additional tariffs worth about United States dollars three billion on 128 USA products.

He lashed out at China for focusing its retaliatory tariffs on states vital to the Republicans' electoral chances.

He said Beijing was engaged in a comprehensive campaign to undermine President Donald Trump and was trying to interfere in US domestic policies and politics. However, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday there will be appropriate compensation for supply-managed farmers in Canada, which will be decided in the coming months. "Hopefully, we can continue to develop that relationship, I think that's wonderful, so we will keep pushing dairy to Canada".

In the near future we will be providing more detailed information on each of the chapters contemplated in the USMCA, by our specialized practice areas on each one of those matters and as a result of the analysis of the final text of the treaty that the Parties make known after the process of formalization and ratification, in accordance with the constitutional ordinances of each one of them.

"China sectors such as energy, IT and industrials will be most impacted based on our analysis, while sectors such as real estate, insurance, diversified financials, telecom and utilities generate virtually no revenue from the U.S", the team wrote.

He linked those alleged activities to China's broader effort to extend its military and economic power across Asia and Africa.

In an interview with NPR before Pence's speech, China's Ambassador to the U.S., Cui Tiankai, downplayed China's global aspirations.

Physics Nobel honors discoveries that advanced eye surgery, virus manipulation
Its uses include the millions of corrective eye surgeries that are conducted every year using the sharpest of laser beams . His story was based on reports from VOANews.com, the Associated Press, Reuters and the Nobel Prize website.

"Despite such reckless harassment, the United States Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate wherever worldwide law allows", Pence said. "But we also understand China can not develop and modernize in isolation".

Pence complained that China's outward aggression is matched by increasing authoritarianism at home, including a crackdown on religious freedom.

Certain agriculture groups have been pushing the administration to once again exempt Canada and Mexico from the US steel tariffs.

Despite gains from the new NAFTA deal with Mexico and Canada, it falls short in reaching "more ambitious goals" of certain agribusiness sectors, a CoBank report said Friday.

"Between any two countries - maybe especially between China and the United States - there is a certain degree of competition", Cui said. Trump said China had been draining the US.

Cui recalled meeting with Pence when the vice president was still governor of Indiana.

Another opposition leader, Jagmeet Singh, of the Canada New Democratic Party, joined by trade critics Karine Trudel and Tracey Ramsey, argued that Canada seems to have gotten a new but worse deal.

USA officials have said they are considering targeted sanctions for human rights abuses. "Why should we cut off all these ties, all these natural ties between the two peoples?"
