Senior Canadian officials in Washington for last-minute NAFTA effort

May 17, 2018

A high-level Canadian delegation is in Washington today looking to plan a path forward for NAFTA negotiations and see if there is a way to find a quick agreement.

Brian Clow, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's point man for American affairs, is among several Canadian officials here for talks with their counterparts.

Canada's ambassador to Washington, David MacNaughton, says there are high-level conversations going on about what's next.

"We will do an assessment of where are we and is there a chance of pulling all this together in a fairly rapid fashion or not?" MacNaughton said.

This comes as the countries are on deadline for getting a deal in the short term.
