Morneau says Canada is working to ensure producers are protected from potential diversion of steel and aluminum from other countries while also balancing the needs of users. "Now they're going to be treated with respect".
He also praised keeping dispute resolution panels, an exemption for Canadian cultural industries which "prevent the United States from taking control of the media sector in Canada".
The agreement is still awaiting ratification in all three countries, but for consumers in B.C. we'll soon see some changes to where we can buy USA wine, in USA dairy-product selection and duty-free limits.
"The amount of milk we're going to be able to move into Canada is pretty insignificant", Goodman said.
Bruno Letendre, head of the association that represents Quebec's milk producers, said the concessions in the agreement are the equivalent of 13 days fewer production for his members. Last month, however, the premier signalled he wouldn't support concessions that hurt Ontario's dairy farmers, saying their jobs could not be treated as "bargaining chips". "Trade is important to us, but trade with Canada is not the biggest worrier".
Compared to overall production in the US, the increased access to Canadian customers is "tiny", not even enough to meet annual growth in American production, he said.
"That's one of the reasons why we aren't doing backwards somersaults over this deal", said Jim Mulhern, president of the National Milk Producers Federation, a USA industry trade group. That oversupply keeps prices low. "The net impact has been zero".

Muncy's pinch-hit homer gave him 34 for the season and the drive splashed into McCovey Cove beyond the right-field arcade. Joe Panik and Evan Longoria got the only hits, a pair of singles, for the Giants , who went 5-21 in September.
US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, in a joint statement, stated that the new deal will create freer markets, fairer business and a better economic growth for the three countries.
Bullard said the labeling system is deceptive to consumers who think they're purchasing a US -made product. "But they are part of it", he said.
KIRWAN: But David Wiens with the group Dairy Farmers of Canada argues that overproduction by USA dairies is a bigger issue. Robertson says the USA pushed for each country to commit to producing a higher percentage of automobile products at home, and steep tariffs if they don't.
For instance, it looks like the U.S. will be able to ship 2,084 metric tons of cheese to Canada tariff free in the first year the agreement is in force with half the cheese being for industrial use and half for retail, he said. He has repeated the complaint often since, threatening to punish Canada with devastating automobile duties. US administration officials said the deal provides increased access to Canada's dairy market for USA producers and limits the American impact of Canada's controversial supply management system for dairy and poultry products. Overall, the deal would grant the States the ability to export an additional 100,000 metric tons or so of various dairy products here. In Ohio, milk prices rose in 2017, but are still below 2014 levels, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "And it's an agreement that will be profoundly beneficial for our economy, for Canadian families, and for the middle class", Trudeau said.
Dairy Farmers of Canada issued a terse statement nearly immediately after the 11th-hour agreement was announced late Sunday, following 14 months of hard negotiations between the parties.
"This is the sort of death by a thousand cuts that the dairy industry is talking about", said von Massow.
