The president of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture is still studying the full text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

But Ron Bonnett thinks the deal is still something Canada could support.

He says it's particularly important to Western Canadian producers involved in export commodities.

Bonnett adds the trade pact continues to be an issue of competitiveness.

He says if any other country gets a deal that is preferential, it will put Canada at a disadvantage.


We have more results from last week's Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.

The Holstein Show was held over two days.

Loyalyn Goldwyn June -- which was bred in the Owen Sound area by Rob and Alice Bumstead -- won the Lifetime production class award.

The cow -- which is now owned by breeders from Quebec and Australia -- also was named Honourable Mention Grand Champion.

Hodglynn Holsteins of Kincardine had three top 10 finishes in the 4 year old class and Senior 2 year old classes.

Unique Holsteins of Mount Forest also finished in the top 10.

Ed Muelendyk of Badjeros and Kailea Holsteins of Elmwood also finished in the top 10 in their divisions.
