NAFTA talks: Loosen protections on dairy sector, New York Republican says

Donald Trump listens to the opening prayer during Air Force Technical Sergeant John Chapman's Medal of Honor ceremony at the White House

Canada must end its low-price milk proteins policy to reach a US-Canadian deal to update the North American Free Trade Agreement, US Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said told reporters after a two-and-a-half-hour meeting with U.S. Trade Representative Robert LighthizerRobert (Bob) Emmet LighthizerMcConnell urges GOP senators to call Trump about tariffs Companies brace for trade war MORE that a deal is "eminently possible" but said she would not negotiate the pact in public, the CBC reported.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said during an interview Tuesday with a Winnipeg radio station, CJOB, that there are certain positions Canada has and remain firm on. Freeland is scheduled to attend the Liberals' caucus retreat Wednesday in Saskatoon and it's unclear whether she will return to the US capital late in the week.

The U.S. and Mexico worked out a preliminary agreement last month, but Canada has yet to agree to the terms presented by the u-s.

In return for concessions on dairy, Canada could request USA concessions on the so-called Chapter 19 dispute resolution mechanism that allows Canada to combat us anti-dumping duties that Ottawa regards as unjustified.

Talks are expected to resume after Lighthizer travels to Brussels for trade talks with European Union trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom on Monday.

"If they want to manage the supply, we are simply saying manage your supply for your dairy industry and let's be done with it".

"We've taken those hits for team Canada, and we are determined that there be no further concessions on dairy", said David Wiens, vice president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada.

"Having said all of that, nothing is done until everything is done" - and that says it all really, but USA officials have said time is running out to agree on a text that can be signed by American, Canadian and Mexican leaders by November 30, before the current Mexican government leaves office.

Former federal Canadian trade official Matthew Kronby said the reported American demands indicate to him that the White House doesn't really want to strike a deal with Canada.

Trump is particularly incensed by Canadian tariffs imposed on dairy products, which he says are "killing" USA farmers, especially in Wisconsin.

It seems nearly a given now that any trade deal Canada strikes with the United States will have to offer up more American access to the Canadian dairy market.

New chapters governing the digital economy and stronger intellectual property, labor and environmental standards could also work to the benefit of US companies, possibly helping Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of creating more American jobs.

"I don't think President Trump will go to the mat over Chapter 19".

"There is no question Canada and Mexico are going to get a haircut and the best you can hope for when you get a haircut is that it looks stylish", Mr. Ujczo said.

"The conversations over the weekend continued to be constructive and productive", she said.
