Trudeau made his remarks prior to Trump's latest anti-Canadian invective, in which the USA president again called out Canada - this time from the Oval Office - as "a disgrace" for hurting American dairy farmers. "Included in there is lumber, timber and energy. We're going to have to get to the negotiating table with Canada very, very quickly".
The U.S. president's surprise decision to call out Canada by name Tuesday put dairy farmers north of the border on notice that they are in America's fair-trade sights.
Cuomo and Walker wrote that roughly 70 NY dairy farmers and millions of dollars in sales have been impacted by new Canadian regulations that target imports of ultra-filtered milk, which is used to make cheese and yogurt. As many as 70 dairy farms could lose $50 million in sales if Canada's trade policies remain in place. Trump has said NAFTA puts US workers at a disadvantage.
Canadian Natural Resource Minister Jim Carr told The Associated Press that the government will make its arguments about trade based on facts.
The work would start immediately, Trump said. "Our government looks forward to sitting down with the United States. We will judge American policy when American policy is announced".
"My focus is on making sure that for the medium and long term, people in Toronto and across the country can afford their homes and that means working on the supply side, making sure that we're investing in more rental stock, making sure that we're investing in new construction of affordable housing so that the market can adjust itself without either popping or crashing", he said.
President Donald Trump says he agrees "100 percent" with a proposal from Democratic U.S. Sen.

In the final stint we had quite a decent gap, plus the safety margin of Lewis's penalty. "It was a really great day", Vettel said. But despite Bottas moving aside for a second time, a charging Hamilton ran out of laps to catch his championship rival.
Trump also criticized the USA trading regime, which calls for a waiting period, and consultations that can stretch to three months or beyond.
Far from the U.S.
About 15 percent of dairy production in the United States is exported with one-third valued at $1.2 billion going to Mexico in the form of milk powder, cheese and whey protein, according to the National Milk Producers Federation, which says trade with Mexico is its top priority.
Francois Dumontier, a spokesman for Les Producteurs de lait du Quebec, said imports of USA milk products have increased since 1993 and now account for three-quarters of milk products in Canada.
"Canada would enter any negotiations with the objective to make it better for both countries", Carr said.
"We're going to get together and we're going to call Canada, and we're going to say, 'What happened?' And they might give us an answer, but we're going to get the solution and not just the answer, because we know what the solution is".
