U.S. senator accuses Canada of 'evading' commitments on dairy amid heightened trade tensions

Post by Mark Fournier »

OTTAWA — The top-ranking senator in the U.S. Democratic Party is pressuring Ottawa over protections for its dairy industry, saying the Liberal government is “evading its commitments” under a new trade agreement set to come into force next week.

Chuck Schumer, minority leader in the U.S. Senate, wrote a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Thursday, urging him to address Ottawa’s “lack of transparency in milk-pricing regulations” and to “ eliminate harmful dairy trade practices” by Canada.
