Farm leaders in Saskatchewan are hoping a trade agreement can be reached between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
Canadian Federation of Agriculture vice president Norm Hall says farmers have had big benefits in all three countries from NAFTA and he remains optimistic a trade deal can be reached.
“This is an opportunity that can open it right up so they can have a good look,” Hall said. “But, once again, do no harm. We don’t want to see the president tear it up, or make the deal go bad.”
Hall remains optimistic a deal can be reached because the stakes are extremely high, with the working class and farmers losing big money if the deal fails.
