Canada-U.K. talking trade

Canadian High Commissioner Janice Charette told the Globe and Mail that British and Canadian offcials have been meeting for months to discuss trade relations after Brexit.

That will surely include Canadian efforts to secure its cheese markets and probably some relaxation of the restrictions on GMO crops.

Charette also said Canadian trade experts have even offered their British counterparts advice on how to negotiate a deal with the EU and others.

The terms of trade with Europe need to be settled before the United Kingdom will be in a position to finalize terms with Canada and others.
