Canada facing new challenge on trade

NAFTA Talks Halted — For Now

"Hopefully we're moving towards a more reciprocal arrangement there that really could be, in light of NAFTA, be really free trade among North America in that way". The results show that a majority of Canadians felt Trudeau handled negotiations and political tension between the USA and Canada well.

Canada has vowed to retaliate against US tariffs on steel and aluminum with tariffs against a range of USA goods, a move supported by 79 percent of Canadians, according to the poll.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, in Washington on Thursday to try to jump start stalled NAFTA negotiations, told reporters she believes Italy will eventually sign on to the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement, or CETA. "I'm going to be travelling to every single state because nothing is better than meeting someone eye-to-eye".

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said Friday he's not pushing for Canada to do away with its supply management system that controls the price and supply of dairy, eggs and chicken.

After an intense few weeks of spewing Twitter hate towards Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about the current trade and tariffs battle between the USA and Canada and the G7 Summit, Trump seems to have changed his tune altogether. "I'm confident that Ambassador Lighthizer heard and understood that", she said.

The poll showed that 62% of people thought his "spat" with U.S. President Donald Trump was handled well, and 59% said that his governments countervailing tariffs in retaliation for Trump's tariffs on steel and aluminium.

The country with the largest decline in its impression of the US under Trump was, perhaps unsurprisingly, Canada.

Tough U.S. tariffs on China could begin as early as Friday
China is a key player in talks to wind down the North's nuclear programme and bring peace to the Korean peninsula. In April, the USA revealed an initial list targeting about 1300 products worth $US50 billion in Chinese imports.

Vowing to stand with the federal Liberals, Ontario's Progressive Conservative premier-designate said he will travel widely in the United States in a bid to help bolster continuing and complex NAFTA talks.

On CETA, Kingston said the comments from Italy were "concerning".

Peter Donolo, vice-chairman at Hill+Knowlton Canada, joins BNN Bloomberg to provide perspective on the tense G7 meeting and what's ahead as Canada-U.S. relations continue to fray.

"Companies always benefit from having investment certainty when they're entering into a market".

Freeland also mentioned having had "a good conversation about CETA" with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at last weekend's G7 summit in the Canadian province of Quebec.

Under CETA, Canada has recognised more than 40 Italian PDO and PGI labels out of a total of 292 for the food-obsessed country. He called it a "gold standard" deal because it offers protections for the environment and labour rights.

"The Fake News Media said that I did not get along with other Leaders at the #G7Summit in Canada".
