MacAulay Defends CETA Plan For Dairy Industry

Federal government support for the dairy industry will ensure it will remain competitive under CETA, Canada's new trade agreement with Europe, says Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay.
MacAulay was responding to a question in the House of Commons from Quebec NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau. Brosseau said Quebec producers are not happy with the government's plan, and they are looking for another $750 million.
"This government supports dairy farmers and supply management. CETA is certainly an important deal for farmers and it will provide additional export opportunities," said MacAulay.
