(Reuters) - Canada’s government said on Saturday it will pump an additional C$691 million ($531.87 million) to support the country’s dairy, poultry and egg farmers, and also reduced the timeline for payment promised to dairy farmers last year. The package for dairy farmers also build on a $250 million CETA on-farm investment program, Bibeau said in a statement here. The government’s compensation payments recognize business dairy and poultry farmers have lost out after trade pacts were struck with the European Union and Pacific nations. Bibeau last year promised that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government will make no further dairy market-access concessions in other trade negotiations. (bit.ly/2VfvS6I)Dairy Farmers of Canada President Pierre Lampron welcomed the compensation plan.

REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque/File PhotoOTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada on Saturday blocked bulk exports of prescription drugs if they would create a shortage at home, in response to outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to allow imports from Canada to lower some drug prices for Americans. The Canadian measure went into effect on Friday, just days before a U.S. “Importation Prescription Drugs” rule that would eventually allow licensed U.S. pharmacists or wholesalers to import in bulk certain prescription drugs intended for the Canadian market. Trump touted the plan in his first debate with President-elect Joe Biden, who has also said during his campaign that he would set up a similar import plan to try to reduce prescription drug costs for Americans. “Canada is a small market, representing 2% of global drug sales, that sources 68% of its drugs internationally. Many of Canada’s drug suppliers opposed Trump’s plan, saying it could lead to shortages.

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada next week will reveal the breadth of the emergency spending it has made during the pandemic and lay the groundwork for future stimulus and social measures, like a national childcare program, government sources told Reuters. But there will also be a “down payment” on a national childcare plan announced in September, two government sources said. “I think most of what we’ll see in Monday’s update will have a pandemic bend,” said Colin Guldimann, an economist with RBC Economics. Freeland, who became finance minister in August, said last month that the fiscal update would include targeted aid to sectors hard-hit by the coronavirus pandemic. “Those negotiations need to keep going... (the airlines) need to open up their books,” said the source.

LONDON/TORONTO (Reuters) - Britain and Canada struck a rollover trade deal on Saturday to protect the flow of $27 billion-worth (£20.32 billion) of goods and services between them after Brexit, and vowed to start talks on a bespoke agreement next year. Her Canadian counterpart Mary Ng said the transitional agreement “largely replicates” the EU deal on tariff reductions and provisions for labour and environment. “We do want an ambitious, high level comprehensive trade agreement with the UK,” Ng said, signalling Canada wanted similar terms to the EU deal. In less than two years it has agreed trade deals with 53 countries, accounting for 164 billion pounds ($217.82 billion) of British bilateral trade. The UK-Canada Trade Continuity Agreement will be subject to final legal checks before it is formally signed.

Britain is negotiating several rollover bilateral trade deals to come into force once it exits a transition arrangement with the European Union at the end of this year, with many of them simply replacing the terms the bloc had already agreed. “Today’s agreement underpins 20 billion pounds worth of trade and locks in certainty for the thousands of jobs,” trade minister Liz Truss said in a statement. The government says in less than two years it has agreed trade deals with 53 countries, accounting for 164 billion pounds of British bilateral trade.

REUTERS/Natalie MaerzluftOTTAWA (Reuters) - New daily cases of COVID-19 in Canada could soar to 60,000 by the end of the year, up from less than 5,000 now, if people increase their daily contacts, the country’s top medical official said in a grim forecast on Friday. Even if current restrictions on gatherings are maintained, new daily cases will jump to more than 20,000 over the same time period, chief public health officer Theresa Tam told a briefing. “The more people who get this disease, the harder it is to control,” Health Minister Patty Hajdu told a briefing. The officials said that by Nov. 30 the total death toll could be between 11,870 and 12,120, with the total number of cases between 366,500 and 378,600. Canada has recorded a total of 315,751 cases and 11,265 deaths so far.

America’s top diplomat Mike Pompeo made history Thursday becoming the first secretary of state and highest ranking U.S. official to visit an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank. He also made a stop at Qasr al-Yahud, the traditional site of the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan Valley, according to a State Department official. A demonstrator holds a Palestinian flag during a protest against Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit, near the Israeli settlement of Psagot in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday.

It was the first resolution criticizing Israeli settlements to be passed by the U.N. body in almost 40 years.
