(25 marks) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ March 13, 2012 Which side of farm's supply­management fence are you on?  By John Ibbitson Globe and Mail Update Many farmers and other supporters argue passionately for continued protection for poultry and dairy, while many economists and business groups condemn it Hundreds of comments, emails and tweets greeted Monday's column, which opined that Stephen Harper might be  willing to abandon the supply management system.  That system protects dairy and poultry farmers from foreign competition. The column predicted that the Prime Minister  would dismantle these protections if that was the only way to secure access to the Trans Pacific Partnership, an  ambitious free trade agreement currently being negotiated among Pacific nations.  We should know the future of supply management by September, when the United States is expected to decide whether  it supports this country's accession to the talks. If Canada is invited to the table, then that means supply management  will be on the table.  Many farmers and other supporters argue passionately for continued protection for poultry and dairy, while many  economists and business groups strongly condemn it.  So what are those arguments, pro and con? Herewith, a brief primer on the two sides of the dispute.  In Praise of Protection  For four decades the federal and provincial governments have regulated the supply of dairy and poultry products,  through a system of quotas, marketing boards and tariffs. The system provides consumers with a safe and affordable  supply of milk, butter, cheese, eggs and poultry, while assuring farmers of predictable income.  Disman
