A rally in support of supply management is planned for Wednesday at the Summerside campaign office of Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea.

The event is slated for noon at 123 Water Street. Talks aimed at reaching an agreement in principle at the Trans-Pacific Partnership talks are now under way and there are reports a deal could be reached as early as Friday.

There were reports last weekend Canada was prepared to grant significant access to the Canadian dairy market to American producers. However, International Trade Minister Ed Fast has denied that rumour.
