Current State of the NAFTA Renegotiation: So Far, So Good?

Posted September 14, 2017

Following the conclusion of the second round of NAFTA talks in Mexico City the other week, public broadcaster TVO convened a panel of experts on its current affairs program The Agenda to discuss the present state of the renegotiations between Canada, the United States and Mexico, with a particular focus on what Canada stands to gain or lose.

Joining host Steve Paikin for the half-hour program were: Maryscott Greenwood, a principal with the Dentons law firm and Chief executive officer of the Canadian-American Business Council; Dan Ujczo, international trade and customs lawyer with the law firm Dickinson Wright; Mark Warner, a legal author and international trade lawyer formerly with the Ontario government and now a principal at the firm MAAW Law; and Linda McQuaig, a journalist, Toronto Star columnist, non-fiction writer and social critic.
