With the differences ironed out with Mexico, the focus now shifts to other NAFTA member Canada.
“Progress between Mexico and the United States is a necessary requirement for any renewed NAFTA agreement,” said Adam Austen, a spokesman for Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland. “We are in regular contact with our negotiating partners, and we will continue to work toward a modernized NAFTA. We will only sign a new NAFTA that is good for Canada and good for the middle class. Canada’s signature is required.”
