Italy Joins Trump in Resisting Canadian Trade

By Canadian Press

The U.S. was a part of the deal when it was known as TPP - until President Donald Trump pulled out in early 2017. Trade Minister François-Philippe Champagne said: "there has never been a better time to diversify".

The spat has also created greater support, in Canada at least, for NAFTA - 83 percent of those polled support the North American Free Trade Agreement, up from 74 percent previous year. Canada is the largest market for US goods.

Canadians approve of Justin Trudeau's response to President Donald Trump's personal attacks as well as his countervailing tariffs on USA imports - and the prime minister's popularity is up, poll results released Friday showed.

Several Canadian cabinet ministers have been reaching out to their American counterparts this week in an effort to advance NAFTA talks and to persuade the Trump administration to back down from his steel and aluminum tariffs.

Doug Ford emerged from a almost hour-long meeting Thursday afternoon with Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Canada's ambassador to the United States, pledging his help in trade dispute.

The Commons was focused on the CPTPP, an 11-country pact signed in February. The New York Post reports that many patriotic-minded Canadians are boycotting American products in stores and even cancelling already-planned vacations to the U.S.

The lawmaker noted the USA economy will see some significant benefits from a new version of NAFTA.

President Trump has revealed that he gave Kim his personal phone number. and that they might make a call some time this weekend. And Friday, the president told Fox & Friends, "He's the head of a country - and I mean he's the strong head".

"Given the prospect of never-ending negotiations, we can expect more and more people to challenge". Mexico was first to ratify in April, Japan is well on its way and other countries, including New Zealand, appear to be aiming for the end of the year.

Add Italy to the growing list of Canada's trade headaches. Some interest groups such as the Canadian Agri-Food Trade Alliance were pushing for the bill to pass before the summer break.

"We wanted to show the Liberals that we're very interested in working with them".

"I think he was a little bit surprised", she said during brief introductory remarks before her meeting with Ford.

New Democrats are concerned that the CPTPP could create job losses, especially in manufacturing and supply-managed agricultural sectors, trade critic Tracey Ramsey explained.

Speaking to reporters in Washington where she's meeting with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Freeland said CETA was discussed with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte during the recent G7 summit in Charlevoix, Quebec.

The U.S. and Canadian farm sectors are better off working together than apart, said Kent Bacus, director of worldwide trade and market access for the U.S. -based National Cattlemen's Beef Association.
