Prime Minister Stephen Harper says the federal cabinet has already approved a plan to spend 4.3-billion dollars over the next 15 years to protect Canadian farmers from the impact of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Twelve nations, including Canada, have reached a tentative deal on the massive Pacific Rim trading bloc, which Harper bills as a historic agreement, the largest-ever deal of its kind. (The proposed agreement reduces or eliminates barriers in a wide range of sectors and could lead to more Canadian exports of pork, beef, canola, high-tech machinery and a variety of other products.)
