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 the largest-ever deal of its kind. Prime Minister Stephen Harper says the historic agreement would set a new gold standard for future global trade deals, protecting Canadian jobs today and create more for generations to come as it secures access to crucial markets overseas. (Harper says the concessions Canada has made in the dairy sector are modest -- an additional 3.25 per cent of foreign imports would be allowed -- and cites the fund as more than enough to ensure dairy producers are protected.)
