    Supply management "forces Canadians to pay higher prices for staple foods. It also reduces the competitiveness of our own industry through this protection," said Jackson Doughart, policy analyst of the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies. "If we had market system instead, and we exported more, these would be more efficient operations and we would benefit from more trade and lower prices." https://lnkd.in/dfZkrPb

CHARLEBOIS: Now that supply management is officially on Trump’s radar, dairy farmers are holding their collective breath. For years they have been defending our five-decade old regime stating it was the perfect system for Canadians. They are about to find out that the world has changed since the 1960s. http://www.aims.ca/commentary/trumps-milk-shake/

The Beacon: Milk management to milk markets

Canada's dairy industry made headlines when President Trump singled out Canada's protectionist policies as harmful to his country. Whether you like Trump or not, it is true that Canada's supply management system in dairy and other agriculture sub-sectors has passed its "best before" date. At AIMS, we favour phasing out the cartel model in lieu of a market system. As with other goods, Canadian consumers should be able to choose between local goods and imports, benefiting from lower prices and more choice.

ZITNER: Rather than accept international standards the Nova Scotia Department of Health insists on selecting the particular companies that will support primary care offices. This antiquated position means that patients and clinicians cannot choose and use the systems they find most convenient and cost-effective. http://www.aims.ca/commentary/nova-scotia-department-health/

Canada introduced supply management in the 1970s, when milk prices were comparable for Americans. Since then, the gap has widened. Different studies, accounting for different factors, have found different precise cost disparities. But a commonly-cited figure is that Canadian prices are twice as great. http://www.aims.ca/commentary/milk-management-milk-markets/
