"For us here in Hamilton we're sort of halfway there", he said. Now that there's a deal, they should be able to "back out of this with their dignity intact".

The new pact is being called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement or USMCA.

The United States, Mexico, Canada Agreement, or USMCA, includes better terms for USA dairy farmers, perhaps the most important goal for US negotiators.

Bickford said dairy in ME is a $500 million per year industry.

"And it's an agreement that will be profoundly beneficial for our economy, for Canadian families, and for the middle class", Trudeau said. Even the National Farmers Union, which tends to be critical of most trade deals, called the agreement encouraging. And hopefully with this new trade, it'll not break us. "The environmental impact of a 20,000 cow farm, the social impact of hiring principally undocumented labour below minimum wage to work in the farms, those are things that are very common in the US and completely unacceptable in Canada".
