Speaking with Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland after a conference call with premiers, Trudeau says it secures a higher standard of living for Canadians, long into the future.
But the prime minister warned the United States Mexico Canada Agreement still needs to be ratified in all three countries.
”We’re not yet at the finish line,” Trudeau cautioned.
Earlier, in a speech outside the White House, Donald Trump played down ”tensions” with Trudeau.
The president admitted the pair have been at odds recently, but said it was all because of NAFTA, and is over now.
”There was a lot of tensions between he and I … but it all ended around 12 o’clock last night,” when the agreement was reached.
Canada’s main concessions were in the area of agricultural supply management as the U.S. will have more access to the Canadian market for dairy, eggs and poultry.
