Trade deal passes the House

The House of Representatives has voted overwhelming support for the new trade deal among Canada, Mexico and the United States.

It’s now off to the Senate where Republican leader Mitch McConnel said it will likely be discussed in early January.

Canada is expected to wait until the U.S. Senate and President Donald Trump seal their approvals before it brings legislation to Parliament to ratify the deal.

Mexico has already approved it.
