Statement by Pierre Lampron, President, Dairy Farmers of Canada in the context of the Premiers meeting

December 07, 2018 - Montreal

“The work to which we dedicate our life with pride and resilience has been reduced to a bargaining chip in recent trade deals. We call upon Canada’s Premiers to take concrete action to secure the federal government's commitment to stop shopping around Canadian dairy in trade deals and to stop making concessions on our dairy industry. Mr. Trudeau: no more concessions at our expense. No more broken promises. Respect your commitments like we respect ours.”
