Ontario premier supports dairy farmers

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Agriculture Minister Jeff Leal issued a joint statement on the weekend supporting dairy farmers in the face of criticisms from United States President Donald Trump.

So what took them so long?

They issued a statement which said “our government continues to strongly support the integrity of Canada’s supply-management system, both nationally and in Ontario, which has served producers, processors and consumers well for almost half a century.”

They drew attention to the volume of trade between Ontario and key dairy states, including Wisconsin and New York.
