I wonder if they will agree when he offers up the dairy supply management in order to get into the TPP?



First, it's not done yet. But if Canada does sign the TPP, I agree that supply management is unlikely to survive (you won't see me crying). And you never know - it's true that the loss of SSM would hurt Quebec's miniscule dairy industry, and the farmers will scream bloody murder. But then again, low prices on dairy products... Yumm.
