PM Trudeau Meets with U.S. Democrat Richard Neal in Ottawa

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Richard Neal, chair of the U.S. House ways and means committee, comment briefly ahead of their meeting in Ottawa on the progress of ratifying the new North American free trade deal.

The agreement was signed between Canada, the United States and Mexico on November 30, 2018, after 14 months of intense negotiations, but only Mexico has ratified it. Canada has maintained it will move in tandem with the U.S. to implement the new NAFTA, but the deal has been stalled in the American congress. (November 6, 2019)
