Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there will need to be what he describes as “a certain amount of movement” before Canada signs on to a revamped North American Free Trade Agreement.
Trudeau says that’s what the federal government is hoping to see at the negotiations in Washington.
Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is back in the U-S capital to rejoin the talks, a day after a prominent congressional ally of U-S President Donald Trump warned there was “growing frustration” among American lawmakers with what he called Canada’s “negotiating tactics.”
Canada has been pushing back against deadlines declared by the U-S but a new agreement is widely seen to require Congressional approval before December 1st in order for an already-negotiated deal with Mexico to survive the installation of the new Mexican government. (Canadian Press)
