As Deadline Looms, US and Canada Close to NAFTA Deal
A US official says Canadian and US negotiators are nearing an agreement on rewriting NAFTA but a few sticking points remained ahead of the midnight deadline. The two sides had been working over the phone through the weekend to strike an agreement, and there has been substantial progress, according to the official. The last stumbling blocks that remain are US access to Canadian dairy markets and the threat of US tariffs on autos.
