Canada seeks trade talks with U.S.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau says Canada wants to meet with president-elect Donald Trump and with Mexican leaders to discuss trade.

“We have an enormous stake in the success of our relationship with the U.S. and with Mexico: our supply chains are intertwined, we’ve developed a very successful economic unit over the course of the last twenty years,” Morneau said at the London School of Economics.

“We will work with the U.S., and this would go with any U.S. administration, in order to show the benefit of that relationship,” he said.

“We expect Mexico will be part of that discussion.”

During the election campaign, Trump repeatedly called the North American Trade Agreement “horrible” and “terrible”.
