Canada's egg producers warn of "significant impact" of trade deal with US

But Dan Ujczo, an worldwide trade lawyer with the US firm Dickinson Wright, said it would only apply to a very small percentage of vehicles that don't comply with the origin rules.

The U.S. -Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement, announced late Sunday after 14 months of negotiations, includes greater access to the Canadian market by American dairy farmers. One, it preserves and enhances the Mexico trade relationship.

Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Jim Holte said state farmers welcome the new agreement with open arms.

But there's a possible boon for wheat growers in states along the border with Canada, which will be required to treat US wheat the same way it treats its own.

He said he hopes the aluminum and steel tariffs can be resolved shortly, but that the manufacturing industry didn't lose on what's in the new deal.

"While this trade agreement was very good news, we are disappointed that Congress was not able to reach a compromise on a new farm bill in advance of the September 30th expiration of the current farm bill".

"The threat of capricious auto tariffs has been lifted, stabilizing future investment" said Dias in a statement.

"This has happened, despite assurances that our government would not sign a bad deal for Canadians", he said.

U.S. Dairy is one area getting a win with USMCA.

"I'll call that a crack in the door", Ohio Dairy Producers Association CEO Scott Higgins said.

"Instead, it appears Canadian steel and aluminum workers are among those being sacrificed in the concessions made by the Liberal government in this deal".

Moscow is also pushing for India s entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group of countries controlling access to nuclear technology. China signed a deal for six battalions of the S-400 in 2015 and countries like Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iraq are in line.

According to farmers, the new deal will weaken the Canadian dairy industry by limiting exports and opening up the domestic market to more American products, concessions that could means hundreds of millions of dollars less in revenue for the industry, which now brings in about $5.9 billion in farm-gate revenue each year.

"There's a lot of bakery and cheese industry in Canada, so there is a need for our product in that form", Amy Martin said.

"Because about half of NAFTA we just put on a fresh coat of paint on it", he said. "There's no doubt about that".

Wiens doesn't think supply management was ever at risk.

Yesterday (1 October) trade body the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) said the industry had been used as a "bargaining chip" in the talks.

She added, dairy farmers will be compensated for their loss. Resolving trade disputes with China is more important to growing export markets, he said.

"What the Americans were really demanding was access to our marketplace and wanting us to stop exporting", said Wiens.

The dairy industry was also heavily critical of the deal, which will grant expanded market access to the domestic dairy market and eliminate competitive dairy classes.

Those tough lessons could help them take on the tariffs and help Hamilton get back where it was before the disruption, according to Loomis.

"At a minimum we haven't lost any ground".

Some have characterized the side letter as effectively establishing a quota on the number of autos that can be exported to the USA - anathema to the very principles of free trade.
