Trudeau to Trump: We’re not your problem in Nafta

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

When Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meets President Donald Trump tomorrow, he will try to persuade the U.S. leader to focus on Mexico as a source of potential problems at talks to update Nafta.

Although Trudeau officials were confident Trump would mostly target Mexico as the three nations started to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, Washington has slapped duties on Canadian Bombardier airliners and lumber exports in recent months and talked tough on dairy and wine.

Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Trudeau would "explain really clearly to the President ... that Canada is not America's problem".
