TPP: Canada facing major job losses and 'collapse' of farming Industries

Canada could be hit with widespread job losses, while the country's agriculture industries could collapse overnight under the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, an expert in food industries has told Sputnik. With debate over the potential benefits and impacts of the TPP heating up, there has been much talk about the effects of the deal on local Canadian industries.”

Despite claims under the former government that the TPP would provide Canadian industries with a boost, Jim Balsillie, former CEO of Blackberry and founder of Canada's Center for International Governance Innovation, told local media that the deal could cost Canada hundreds of billions of dollars, calling it the 'the worst deal the country has ever signed in its history.'”

Dr Sylvain Charlebois, professor of distribution and food policy at the University of Guelph's Food Institute in Canada, told Sputnik there were many unanswered questions in the deal. [...] Canada's protectionist supply management scheme, which works to protect local industries, would be thrown out under the TPP, with concerns over how this would impact local producers.”

The supply management scheme has been in place since the mid-60s in order to protect Canadian agricultural sectors from larger US corporations. As a result, Dr Charlebois says the local industries have become complacent and inefficient, and would not be able to survive under the TPP if it was implemented immediately. He says that while some reforms are needed, the changes must be implemented in a fashion that allows local industries to adapt. [...] He told Sputnik that a large majority of Canada's 12,000 dairy farms could be put out of business.”
