Supply management is an outdated system that props up cartels at the expense of every single Canadian. It keeps prices artificially high by imposing exorbitant tariffs on imported goods, like a 300% tax on butter. Daily staples like butter, milk, eggs and chicken are not luxury items, and should not be priced that way. Eliminating supply management would save the average Canadian family more than $500 each and every year. Standing up to the cartels and protecting the pocketbooks of 35 million Canadians is the right plan. I would follow the Australian model, with a gradual phase-out and compensation for farmers.
