NAFTA Needs To Be Replaced, Not Renegotiated

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) must be replaced with a transparent trade agreement that ensures farmers in all three nations—Canada, Mexico, and the United States—receive fair prices for their production, that consumers are guaranteed the right to know the content and origin of their food, and that strong environmental protections are put in place to protect the sustainability of rural communities.

Thanks, Mr. Goodman, well said.
If I've read you correctly, you could be talked into adopting a Canadian-style Supply Management. One can only hope.

I have been in favor of supply management since the 80"s

Thanks for the informative article . .

Corporate trade deals also have overly bidness friendly dispute resolution provisions.

FYI, Mr. Trump, all sovereign countries have an inalienable right to determine Ag. policy. Maybe take a look out your back window or gaze at your back yard from your deck. You have had 'the farm bill' for a long time. We Ag professionals have long heard from American famers, particularly in North Dakota and Minnesota, that without the subsidies provided through the farm bill, that their children would never consider taking over farms in the future. What's the option then -- no domestic Ag? Giant domestic Ag? You decide - - - - just as we have. And one more thing - - your transparency Mr Trump - -- you like to say you're unpredictable - - - not so - - - you're the easiest guy to predict - - something like the behavior of a moose in rut. Easy to stay ahead of a guy like you. Maybe consult with Alec Baldwin more.
