Canada and the World, Ep. 5: The NAFTA standoff

By Rachel Ziemba

As Washington negotiations continue on NAFTA, what are the main sticking points for Canada and the US? This episode dives into what has been said publicly and what has likely been discussed behind the scenes — from Chapter 19 to culture to supply management. How do these issues compare and relate to CETA and the TPP? How has uncertainty around the deal impacted markets and sectors such as autos and agriculture? Host Bessma Momani once again brings together three experts to explain what you need to know on the issue.
