Ottawa, ON – Conservative Shadow Minister for Agriculture, Luc Berthold, released the following statement on Justin Trudeau’s failure to provide dairy farmers with security following the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA):
“Yesterday, Justin Trudeau once again failed to keep his word and stand up for Canada’s dairy farmers.
“It’s bad enough that Justin Trudeau gave in to Donald Trump and offered up more market share for American exporters. But instead of announcing a compensation package for our farmers, Justin Trudeau left them waiting and with continued uncertainty.
“Canadian dairy farmers want certainty and support. Conservatives will continue to stand up for milk, egg, and poultry producers and call for the support that they need.”
