SHIPLEY SAYS USMCA DEAL HAS "NEGATIVE IMPACT," ON ONTARIO 10/5/2018 2:16:22 PM
Some food for thought as we wrap up Ontario Agriculture Week. MP Bev Shipley says farmers are worried, and rightly so, about the impact of the recently agreed on trade deal between Canada and the U.S., now called the USMCA.
Shipley says the frustrating part is that farmers are also confused about what it all means for them and they're having a hard time getting the information they need from the government. Perhaps that's why it's more important than ever to mark Ontario Agriculture Week, which Shipley says is a time to say thank you to those who work in the industry.
Shipley adds that it's harvest season and farm vehicles are on the move. He's asking drivers to be patient and cautious on the roads.
