The true price of giving in to Trump’s ultimatum in dairy

To the Editor: Canadian dairy farmers woke up Monday to realize that their worst nightmare had become a crushing reality. Despite multiple assurance to the contrary, the Trudeau government sacrificed them once again at the altar of flawed trade negotiations.

Do the Trump tactics really work?

To the Editor: ‘The Donald’ has a facet of the American public who support his egomaniacal rantings, racial slurs and personal insults.
