Canada PM says won't be rushed on Nafta, new deal not guaranteed
[UNITED NATIONS] Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday said he would not be rushed into renewing NAFTA and indicated it was possible the three member nations might fail to conclude a new pact.
Mr Trudeau told reporters Canada would take as long as necessary in its bid to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Asked about the challenges posed by a U.S. threat of auto tariffs, Mr Trudeau said Canada would need to feel confident "about the path forward as we move forward - if we do - on a Nafta 2.0".
