Trudeau’s NAFTA Climate Change Agenda Running Into Trump Wall

As the U.S., Canada and Mexico seek a new and improved North American Free Trade Agreement in negotiations this week, climate change has become a chief obstacle.

Negotiators will be spending seven hours on Tuesday discussing the environment alone.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants any renegotiated NAFTA to include his climate change agenda. Good luck with that, says the Conservative opposition, who note that President Donald Trump yanked the United States out of the Paris climate accord.

That prompted an angry response from Trudeau’s environment minister, Catherine McKenna, who unleashed a Twitter storm Sunday against the Conservatives.
