Canada will not accept a bad deal in NAFTA renegotiation

NATION-NOW     Why Canada's prime minister uses 'peoplekind' instead of 'mankind'             Why Canada's prime minister uses'peoplekind instead of'mankind

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently came under fire because of a comment he made during a Q&A session at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Canada. A total of 9 million jobs in the United States are directly related to trade and investment with Canada, according to the Canadian Prime Minister.

Speaking at the University of Chicago's Institute of Politics, Trudeau said it's possible that it might be better for Canada to accept "no deal" rather than accede to revised trade proposals from the Trump administration.

The message to American audiences will simply be, "Canada is still open for trade even without NAFTA", Brock said.

The Liberal Party leader made the comments last week when a woman affiliated with the World Mission Society Church of God asked him at a town hall to remove restrictions on volunteering with religious organizations.

"There are lots of things on which we can find common ground", Trudeau said of Trump.

If this is the sort of progressivism he's trying to insert into the NAFTA text, no wonder President Trump's thinking of tearing it all up.

Trudeau told students and faculty members at the University of Chicago that his country agrees to modernize and improve the nearly 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), but "will not be pushed into accepting any old deal". He noted the two nations' economies are so interlinked that Canada wants a good deal with the U.S.

Khaled succumbed to his wounds, after being shot with a live round in the chest; he died at the at al-Najah Hospital, in Nablus . Governor of Jenin Ibrahim Ramadan said his office was officially informed that Jarrar, 22, was killed in the army operation.

Trudeau will be under pressure to make a strong pitch on Toronto's behalf during his face-to-face meeting with Bezos.

Conservative MP and former veterans affairs minister Erin O'Toole said he's glad that Trudeau said the government will reconsider their approach, as he thinks it is sending the wrong signal.

"That indicates precisely the way he thinks, and I don't think he does think", Peterson told the morning news show.

Before the event, he will sit down with several political leaders, including Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who also served as President Obama's first Chief of Staff.

In San Francisco, Trudeau will meet Amazon's top executive, Jeff Bezos, among other tech sector executives.

Trudeau is visiting the USA for the ninth time since President Trump took office - while there, he will also meet with executives from Silicon Valley, including Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
