1. Gee, I would have thought current supply chain issues and the risk of starvation in many countries because they can't get grain from the Russia and Ukraine would be a wakeup call. In my town, agriculture contributes 3.8 billion to the provincial economy with almost a billion in actual farm gate receipts, 16,000 full time jobs or 23% of all jobs in the city a good percentage of that is from dairy farms which contribute more to the local economy than any other type of farming because of the level of goods and services they require to operate.

2. You go on about foreign ownership but the vast majority of Canadian dairy farms are family owned. You would rather give your money to foreign factory farms to save a nickel.

3. Not everything is about saving you the odd buck in the grocery store at the expense of your own economy and access to a secure source of food.

1. Maybe, but there are also examples of global trade providing quick solutions.  Free trade is better for overall job growth.

2. For dairy, yes, this is true.  Not for other sectors that would be protected though.  It's not a nickel but dollars paid by every family.

3. It's all about $, and if you want to spend more to mitigate a risk or preserve a value then that's fair but let's look at it.

Basically you are talking about a race to the lowest common denominator. We can try living with an economy selling each other things made in other countries without having to create our own wealth.

1. No, I'm talking about countries focusing on their economic advantages.  And it's not my idea, it's economic orthodoxy.

2. We do create our own wealth.

!. you mean the economic advantages of cheap labour and no environmental standards.

2. We do? Where?
