Canada's Freeland: Had good conversation with Lighthizer Wednesday
Comments from Canada's trade negotiator:
- Every meeting is a meeting closer to a deal
- Going to continue to make the case to lift US tariffs
- Grateful for Mexican compromises on labour in NAFTA
- US steel tariffs need to be lifted
This isn't much to go on but the comments are relatively upbeat and that affirms the narrative that a deal is close.
