Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday indicated Canada would not bend on key demands at talks this week with the United States to update the North American Free Trade Agreement.


“There are a number of things we absolutely must see in a renegotiated NAFTA,” he told reporters in the Pacific province of British Columbia.

Officials for both sides are scheduled to meet in Washington on Wednesday in a bid to settle some major differences.
