P.E.I. dairy farmers hijack government announcement

P.E.I. dairy farmers were at a joint federal/provincial announcement on highway repaving in Cardigan Friday to make their displeasure with the USMCA deal known.

The farmers placed a poster in front of the podium reading “Dairy farm for sale.” The trade agreement announced this week would allow American farmers access to 3.59 per cent of Canada’s supply-managed dairy products market.
