John Weekes writes in BRINK on the success of the new North American trade deal between Canada, the United States and Mexico—a development that was greeted with relief in Canada and by most Americans.
John looks at how the USMCA's success marked a restoration of sanity to the management of North American trade relations and why securing ratification in Canada should be relatively easy.
He also writes that, "it is hard to overestimate the importance of the strong bipartisan support given by Congress to the USMCA. This shows that the U.S. can negotiate and implement major modern trade agreements. This development should send a positive signal to other countries contemplating whether or not to engage in negotiations with the United States."
