Crying over managed milk


 

The Agenda convenes a panel, including our Andrew Coyne, to debate supply management.


 

Crying over managed milk

  1. I must say, that the articles in Macleans on this topic have attracted a huge amount of very informative comments.   It prompted me to do a vast amount of reading on the topic and I am convicned our supply management is the right thing for so many reasons.

    Note also that the big speech the NZ trade minister gave yesterday dissing Canada’s dairy SM was given at the opening of a new “factory” farm. 

  2. We either free trade or we don’t….and to be in any major free trade deals, all supply management has to go.

    It has to happen sooner or later, and it might as well be now when the govt is at the beginning of it’s term and has the forward momentum of the wheat board disappearing.

  3. Given the schlock that passes for political TV these days (CBC, CTV, especially Sun News), I just want to say how awesome The Agenda is.  Issues actually are discussed in a substantive way.

    If Parliament debated issues the way they get discussed on this show… well, who am I kidding.

    • People who read the magazine and this blog and write comments here will be fascinated by this Agenda program which offers a new version of conservative thinking which has nothing in common with the Canadian Manning/Harris/Harper/Flaherty ideology.

  4. Ah, the glory of neoliberal economic dogma.
    And I am glad that Mr. A. Coyne  was able to work in .. briefly ..
    his tiresome obsession with the plight of single mothers on welfare.
    Noble.

  5. Mr. Coyne – that rant at 14:00 was brilliant!  Sorry to be a day late and a dollar short, but I really appreciate what you said and how you said it.

  6. New Zealand didn’t give up supply management on poultry, by the way.
