Canadian legislators approve Panama free trade accord

Friday, November 9, 2012

A bill for a free trade agreement between Panama and Canada will be sent to the Canadian Senate after it was approved by the House of Commons.

The bill was approved by 171 votes to 90, and will come into effect when the governor-general, David Johnston, signs the document.

Opposition members criticized the government for delaying the approval of the accord, which led to the United States signing its accord with Panama first.
