The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport and Chair of the Canada-United States Relations Cabinet Committee, [has] concluded a working visit to Washington, D.C., to take part in a series of events with American officials and discuss the new trade agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico and other trade matters.

On Thursday, Minister Garneau and the Ambassador of Canada to the United States, David MacNaughton, participated in a discussion about the new NAFTA hosted by the Canadian American Business Council...

Throughout his meetings, Minister Garneau pressed the U.S. to remove its illegal and unjustified steel and aluminum tariffs that harm companies and workers in both Canada and the U.S.
