Dairy industry remains concerned over CUSMA

The Dairy Farmers of Canada have mixed feelings about this week's funding announcement from Ottawa. 

Federal Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau re-confirmed Ottawa's commitment to compensate the Supply Management sector over the Canada, U-S, Mexico Agreement (CUSMA).

Bibeau says $1.7 billion dollars will be shared by dairy, poultry, egg producers and processors impacted by CUSMA.

That money will be delivered through direct payments and investment programs.

David Wiens, Vice President of the Dairy Farmers of Canada says they would just as soon not have had to give up any markets at all.

"Because, of course, this trade deal goes on into, you know, it's a continuous thing. So we'll never get those markets back that we lost. But certainly, we appreciate the the recognition of damage done in this trade deal by our federal government."
