So it seems to me that Canada shouldn't be criticizing Trumps tariffs on foreign goods because Canada is doing the same thing on Foreign dairy products.
      There is no tariff on US dairy until the US reaches its quota limit. The US does not export once that quota is hit so there are no tariff on US dairy our dairy is not high priced as you stated before. I bought milk last week and the price was 3.99 Canadian. The US has a tariff on all Chinese product so you can't compare the two as there not the same.

      Rick this might help you to understand dairy trade. Trump has done a good job of misrepresenting dairy trade with Canada.

      We are paying about 30 to 50 cents more depending on where you buy it. But we have no government subsidies to lower that price.

        If Canada is paying $3.99 for 1.6 USA gal, then Canada is paying 2.49 per USA gallon.
        If the USA is paying $3.27 per gallon, the USA is paying more.
        I hope my calculations ae correct.

              You're right. I’m wrong. That should have been 1.06 US gallons for 4 liters.
              That would make the Canadian price for one US gallon $3.76 ($3.99 for 1.06 US gallons) compared to $3.27 the USA pays for one US gallon.
              All this because someone asked if $3.99 was the price of one litter.
              Where I went wrong was I ran out of fingers and toes to count with.

                Walmart price is $2.79. https://grocery.walmart.com/ip/Great...SABEgLk0vD_BwE

                that’s almost $1 a gallon lower than Canadian milk. (About 30% lower) Canadians could save Billions if Canada’s government allowed duty and tariff free imports, but they don’t because they believe in protecting their domestic farmers, just like they Criticize Trump for trying to do to protect American business. Can’t criticize us for doing what you already do, folks.

                      The Canadians love milk.

                      They finally built a new Costco in Bellingham a couple years ago with a much bigger fridge to keep up with the Canadians demand for milk. I used to have to drive south 30 minutes to the Costco in Mount Vernon to avoid the crowds and so i could buy hard boiled eggs. They didn't carry the peeled hard boiled eggs in Bellingham because they needed all the fridge space for milk.

                        What has that got to do with tariffs on the US.

                      #90
                      What the hell is the concern with US mill??? Honestly, I dont get why the Canadians are so concerned with what we pay for a gallon of milk.

                      worry about what you pay and address that with your market...if you pay too much then dont buy milk. Free market will then lower the price....you pay more for milk because of supply vs demand. Lower the demand then supply goes up and price goes down. Simple economics right?

                      fyi....gallon of milk at Krogers is 2.50 not 3.50. That's our local price.....I would pay 5.00 per gallon if I could find in glass container. Would even pay more if I could find business to deliver it old school style along with ice cream and cheese.

                      It's really no concern of Canada is it? Interesting point that hookmadoo made...only ones crying about tariffs of USA are 2 canadians. What the hell is the motivation....

                        I could care less about what Canadians have to pay for milk. My whole point in highlighting their excessive prices for milk was to show how their restrictive import policies and TARIFFS on imported Dairy products serve to raise their milk prices to Canadian citizens and that if they allowed the US to import milk to Canada, their citizens would pay alot less per gallon for milk. At the same time, I was trying to call out Iproff for whining about Trump's tariffs and how they hurt Americans while, at the same time CANADIAN Dairy tariffs hurt Canadian citizens by making them pay higher prices, and how inequitable it is for him to try to shame Trump while at the same time his country does the same thing to their own citizens by putting Tariffs and import quotas on American dairy products imported to Canada. Point is, don't try to shame the US for doing exactly what you Canadians do to your own citizens.
