“There are multiple issues at which point we will not accept a deal,” said Trudeau.
“There have been people out there, including former prime minister Harper, who have said, ‘look, NAFTA is too important, you can’t walk away from it, you should accept a bad deal rather than no deal.’ I’ve been very clear that no, I’m not going to accept a bad deal.”
Canada, the United States and Mexico are facing down a March deadline to renegotiate the 25-year-old deal, which allows for the free flow of goods between all three countries. ■
