Trump vs Canadian Dairy farmers

Sounds like Trump declared war on Canadian Dairy farmers today in Wisconsin. Could this start the end to Quota as we know it? Who would pay for the $30 billion of value?

There is no question he is gonna be putting the pinch on Canadian commodities, I think he is awesome for the Americans, I wish we had a trump prime minister, instead of our jet setting playboy. This is just the start, like I said years ago, just wait, trump is gonna give allll those Canadian farmers along the border a swift kick in the arse, growing grain in Canada and trucking it to u.s. Elevators is gonna end soon for those guys.. just watch.

Remember, he said Nafta was a bad deal for the u.s., if anyone thought that it wasn't going to affect Canadian farmers, they are in a dream world. Soon the only products they will import will be the ones they actually need. And they don't need very many Canadian ag products.
The large American owned elevators located here in Canada will lobby to slow grain movement to the u.s. In an effort to drive our prices down, this way they can make a killing selling our grain. It will be another excuse like the railway backlog a few years ago.
Our pm is just gonna sit there like a little panting lap dog during all this.

Just as soon as we stop importing Aussie beef. So many of these trade deals are beyond messed up.

Huh? That's just silly. Either the grain is going to cross the border or it isn't - you can't have it both ways. So if you're saying that US owned grain companies are going to lobby to reduce their cross border handle that seems counterintuitive - they make $/bu. On the other hand if they're going to "make a killing selling our grain" that's going to require volume which implies an open border.

The real issue issue is the supply managed sector which is simply indefensible. I'm not advocating that the existing supply managed farms should be hung out to dry - obviously their quota needs to be bought out and the Canadian taxpayer will have to take the hit. Its no different than the Crow payout. It has to happen. Everyone knows it has to happen. All anyone is arguing about is WHEN it is going to happen. Kudos to Maxime for having the balls to say it needs to happen now.

Really?
Canadian envoy fires back at Trump over dairy - Politics - CBC News

Even more interesting:
Trudeau sends more ministers to U.S. amid NAFTA and border tax worries - Politics - CBC News

And that happened before Bozo even made that big pronouncement.

That's being a lap dog how?

Oh, I'm sure you could do a much better job.
