To our Canadian listeners — Happy Canada Day! We hope you are able to take a break from spraying and enjoy some downtime to celebrate our country! Not only is it Canada Day, but it’s also Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA, or USMCA, depending on where you are) implementation day. On today’s episode of RealAg Radio, host Shaun Haney will cover many aspects of the deal speaking with:
- Claire Citeau, executive director of the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance (CAFTA), the organization that represents all of exportable commodities;
- David Wiens, dairy farmer from Manitoba, and vice president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), with dairy’s perspective on the deal;
- Cam Dahl, of Cereals Canada, on some of the changes they had to make in order to make the agreement go through;
- Carlo Dade, of the Canada West Foundation, with a tidbit from our latest RealAg LIVE! segment, on Dade’s thoughts on the agreement, and some of the things he feels were missed in the discussions.
