Canadian PM reiterates on NAFTA: no deal 'better'than bad deal

CANADA'S Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated on Wednesday during a US visit that he is willing to walk away from the North American Free Trade Agreement if renegotiation fails to produce a deal he can accept.
"We will not be pushed into accepting any old deal, and no deal might be better for Canada than a bad deal,"Trudeau said during remarks in Chicago -- the first stop in a visit that will also take him to Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Trudeau's comments came after the latest round of talks between Canada, the United States and Mexico ended on January 29 with word that there was slow progress emerging.
US President Donald Trump has threatened to withdraw from the trade pact if it is not renegotiated to his liking.
"We are legitimately concerned about the future of NAFTA, because the (US) president has said he's not sure it's a good thing,"Trudeau said at a Wednesday appearance at the University of Chicago.
