The Premier of Saskatchewan is among those watching the ongoing trade negotiations between Canada and the United States In Washington very closely.
Scott Moe says there is a lot at stake for Saskatchewan as the province exports about 55-percent of its goods to American destinations and about 85-percent of imports come from the U-S.
Canada’s dairy industry is a contentious issue and Moe says Canadian negotiators have taken care of the province’s dairy producers in deals with other countries.
Moe advocates for a positive agreement while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada wants the right deal, not just any deal.
Today is the deadline for an agreement set by U-S President Donald Trump.
Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says a deal is not imminent.
