Canada must harness its new trade deals

by Colin Robertson

The Globe and Mail
November 5, 2018

Hold the cheers for the trade agreements, whether CETA, CPTPP or USMCA. There is still work to be done before Canada’s governmentcan claim victory for the acronyms we now associate with our new trans-Atlantic, trans-Pacific and North American trade pacts.

All three are important, but with three-quarters of our trade being within North America, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is critical.
