Spur agriculture growth through increased exports
Conservatives have always believed in expanded trade as the basis for prosperity. Ratifying the Trans-Pacific Partnership, expediting Canada-India Free Trade negotiations, and immediately and aggressively launching free trade negotiations with China will open new export opportunities for Canada’s high quality agricultural products. Canadian pork farmers are at a massive disadvantage because they cannot export pork to China without having to vault over a tariff barrier. Australian pork farmers don’t have that problem. Our farmers should have every opportunity to succeed.
