The point is not Canada surface, it is only twice the surface of EU. What makes door delivery expensive is that Canada population is much more sparse the in Europe.
Anyway, this is a sad regression. There was a time where western nations were able to do things for the public good, without whining everyday about the costs.
Fortunately, France agriculture is not only focused on mediocre products that could not be sold without EU subsides. There are also quality products that will find buyers even without EU help.
IMO the problem is not that EU agricultural policy helps France too much, the problem is that it helps mediocre products that are exported and unfairly compete with third world products, pushing the farmers out of business.

Problem is: nuclear is not viable on the long term. Of course it brings you power without carbon footprint, and this is good. But nuclear fuel is not available in infinite supply. On the long term, renewable are the only viable sources.
You can't go 'on strike' because nobody is buying your product.

The body obeys laws of thermodynamics, but it is a complex system with feedback loops. Eat less, and the body reduce the energy it spends so that you do not loose fat.
There are tricks to game body feedback rules, however.
USA and EU will probably have to harmonize patent law for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It should normally be legislator's job, but sometimes it does not work, and ourt have to do the job.
For instance, EU countries signed a treaty in 1974 saying that computer programs are not patentable, and as a result they all have this provision in state laws. That did not prevent patent offices to grant software patent in EU, that just makes them difficult to enforce.
