   OTTAWA — Canada’s final capitulation to signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership was a move loudly applauded by most agricultural sectors in Canada and equally loudly criticized by the supply-managed sectors. Canada agreed last month to a modified deal to be signed at an unconfirmed date.
   The 11-country deal was thrown into disarray last November in Vietnam when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau failed to appear at a meeting to sign the deal even though it was in the same hotel where he was staying.
   Much has been said and written about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, both good and bad. But how much will it affect farmers when it comes down to dollars and cents?
