The U.S. Senate has put its finishing touches on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) and it has been sent to the White House. President Donald Trump told the American Farm Bureau Federation on Sunday, that USMCA and the agreement with China, “are just the beginning,” as his administration seeks more trade agreements.

Canada will consider the passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement next week. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (true-doh) told reporters this week, “On Monday, we will introduce a Ways and Means motion, and on Wednesday we will table legislation to ratify the deal.” Trudeau says, “We are going to make sure that we move forward in the right way, and that means ratifying this new NAFTA as quickly as possible, but responsibly in the House of Commons.”

Canada is the last of three nations to take action on the agreement. Mexico has already ratified the agreement, and the U.S. has one final step, that being President Trump’s signature.
