Mexico’s senate approves trade deal

Mexico’s senate has ratified the North American free trade deal, but Canada and the United States have unfinished work ahead.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Washington today to meet with United States President Donald Trump and the trade deal will be one thing they will discuss. Another will be relationships with China.

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has been speaking to politicians in Washington to urge approval of the deal and suggested some changes might be possible. Canada immediately responded with a firm “No!”.

Trudeau has said he could recall Parliament to pass ratification of the deal.
