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.
