I know dairy farmers both in the lower mainland and around PG. Please. They do very well for themselves. Sure, they get less for their cheese, but they still do very well.Most cow farms close (and unlike Obi Wan's opinion that it's better to work minimum wage and pay 30% less for cheese than to own your farm, no it isn't)
Why would they close? Dairy farms in Quebec would close, if they were not subsidized by Western Canada.
BC alone could replace the entire output of Quebec and then some. Plenty of room here for dairy farming.Are replaced by large exploitations or imports
If there's a market for 'made in Quebec' cheese, then the market will supply whatever demand there is for it. Some people are willing to pay a premium for local supply.diversity of taste
I worked in a health food store, Oncle Boris. It's not clear to me that opening it to true competition would result in a shortage of the cheese that you like. Quite the opposite. If there's a demand for it, someone will make it.
