New Zealand files action vs. dairy

New Zealand has filed for disputes resolution over Canada’s import barriers.

The complaint was filed under the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and is similar to ongoing complaints the United States has filed about the way Canadians are controlling dairy imports.

Canada filed a response to the U.S. complaints, but negotiations remain ongoing. Canada has seven days to respond to New Zealand’s complaint.

Canada's dairy industry is giving us a black eye for being unfair after signing trade agreements. But, then again, the entire supply management system is a black eye of unfairness, especially to poor Canadians.
