  • NAFTA Talks To Resume This Week

The governing Liberal Party is holding its caucus retreat in Saskatoon on Wednesday and Thursday and it's not known whether Ms. Freeland will pause negotiations after Tuesday to head to the caucus meeting.

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to push ahead with a bilateral deal with Mexico, effectively killing the nearly 25-year-old three-country NAFTA pact, which covers $1.2 trillion in trade.

So far, Canada has been unable to obtain a guarantee from the United States that Canadians would not be hit with punitive US auto tariffs if Ottawa agrees to a new NAFTA deal with Washington.

"Our baseline is that Canada will join the U.S. -Mexico agreement, making concessions on dairy, but that it likely will have to make some concession on dispute resolution as well".

Canadian and USA officials continue to chip away in pursuit of a new North American Free Trade Agreement deal but without the top players at the table. While China/US tensions have seemed to support the dollar, with the US seeing as to have the upper hand, NAFTA progress should be CAD and commodities which would ultimately weigh on the greenback and potentially lift the price of gold - well, at least that is what we have seen in the late hours of US trade.

Yet, he stressed that "if we sign the deal it'll be. for Canada and Canadians".

USA dairy farmers have long demanded more access to Canada's market and also are unhappy about a Canadian decision to allow farmers to sell milk protein products to the country's processors at a lower price, cutting off American supplies.

Meanwhile, despite the "several" issues still in dispute, there is strong will on the USA side, especially, to wrap up the talks by Friday, trade lawyer Dan Ujczo said Monday.

Patriots to sign former Browns first-rounder Coleman

Daniel Ujczo, a US trade lawyer who has worked for both the Canadian and the USA governments, rejects the notion that Canada and the United States are at a stalemate.

Democrats hope to take control of the U.S. Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans in November congressional elections. Trump wanted changes that would destroy family farms across Canada, he said.

The latest talks between Canada and the United States have been intense but constructive, marking a departure from acrimonious tit-for-tat that surrounded past rounds.

"I think this is a complicated time for employees. We're just going to stay working constructively to get to that win, win, win that we know is there", he said in the interview.

It is unclear how long the current round of talks will go on in Washington.

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

"Forget what you read about NAFTA negotiations and Twitter wars, that's not who we are", Craft told the gathered crowd as she thanked Canada - and Gander - for playing host in 2001 to countless stranded American air passengers.
