Trudeau hails CETA as 'blueprint' for future trade deals

February 16, 2017

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau marked the European Parliament's passing of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)..., hailing it as a potential model for future trade deals while addressing the concerns of those who opposed it...

The House of Commons passed C-30, Canada's implementation legislation, at third reading [on February 14, 2017].

Once C-30 clears the Senate, federal laws and regulations will change to bring Canada into compliance. Similar changes need to be made at the provincial and territorial level.

Once Canada finishes this, over 90 per cent of the agreement may come into force provisionally. A release from the EU suggested this could be the case as early as April 1.

This was excerpted from 15 February 2017 edition of CBC News.
