Canadian trade negotiators to brief PM Trudeau in person

NAFTA Talks To Resume This Week

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to pull out of NAFTA entirely and the future of the trade agreement is still unclear as negotiations continue in Washington.

Canada and the United States have been negotiating since August 28 after Washington unveiled a proposed North American free-trade deal with Mexico and pressed Canada to sign on or be left out. Trump wanted changes that would destroy family farms across Canada, he said. "People are kind of sitting on the sidelines thinking, 'How will this affect us in the future?' If we were to lose the auto industry here that would put us into some type of recession", Chiodo said, noting that the auto trade has "always been pretty fair" for both the USA and Canada.

"But it would also be devastating to the American auto industry".

"I think it's something that we obviously have to be aware the president is contemplating".

Democrats hope to take control of the U.S. Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans in November congressional elections.

USA farmers complain Canada is flooding export markets. Overall, he said, he believes Canada is handling the talks well.

Craft, a fixture at the NAFTA talks last week, was in Gander, N.L., to commemorate the role that town played on the day 17 years ago when the United States shut down its airspace, forcing countless passenger airliners to find refuge wherever they could.

Officials say the main sticking points are Canada's dairy quota regime, Ottawa's desire to keep a dispute resolution mechanism, and Canadian media laws that favour domestically produced content.

"Not negotiating in public has helped us to have the kind of frank and candid conversations we need to have around the table, and crucially, it has helped to build that trust and goodwill and good faith on both sides".

Around 46 people were injured, the Hengyang city government office in charge of online information and propaganda said. He was a known criminal having served various prison sentences for arson and assault convictions.

"Clifford Sosnow, a Canadian trade lawyer based in Ottawa, said the talks are happening on two levels, one behind the scenes where the hard work is happening and the other where the politicking, the spinning and the hurling of insults" is happening.

Still, "with a bit of flexibility, things could move quickly", the source added.

Trudeau and his ministers will hold a caucus retreat in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to plot their strategy.

US Ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft meanwhile delivered an address in Gander, Newfoundland, where dozens of in-bound flights were diverted in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks.

"We have been very clear on that, that there can not be more access given", Wiens said in a telephone interview.

"Sure, it's business and it's important, but Gander is the place that - in a snapshot - illustrates the Canada/U.S. relationship".

"Canada wants to make a deal".

After more than a year of negotiations, Canada and the United States are still trying to resolve bilateral differences over NAFTA, an accord that also includes Mexico.
