Comment from Canadian foreign minister

  • US said right from the start they might quit NAFTA, you have to take them at their word
  • Canada preparing for the worst at NAFTA talks, hoping for the best
  • Canada has 'ideas' on 'unconventional' US proposals
  • NAFTA countries are 'close' to closing more chapters

Sounds somewhat constructive but there seem to be a few spots -- arbitration is one -- where the US and Canada have some irreconcilable differences.
