Canada and Mexico have both shown a willingness and commitment to be flexible in trade talks and now is the time for the Trump administration to follow suit, Canadian American Business Council CEO Maryscott Greenwood told CNBC Wednesday. "It would be a giving up of our sovereignty and our identity and that is something that we will simply not accept," Trudeau was quoted by CBC as telling reporters Tuesday.
“They (Canada) want to be part of the deal, and we gave until Friday and I think we’re probably on track. "We recognize that there is a possibility of getting there by Friday, but it is only a possibility, because it will hinge on whether or not there is ultimately a good deal for Canada," Trudeau announced in a press conference, according to CNBC.
Following this week's trade pact between the U.S. and Mexico, the Trump Administration is aiming to arm-wrestle Canada to agree to more favorable trade terms in the U.S., particularly in matters of agriculture and dairy. President Trump has gone as far to say that he will drop the "NAFTA" name and name this week's agreement the "United States-Mexico Trade Agreement," potentially leaving Canada out in the cold. However, the deal still faces approval from Congress, which is likely to move forward only if Canada is brought on board as a trilateral agreement is paramount given the relevance across many industries, including agriculture, autos, manufacturing, steel and energy.
According to Canada's Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, ongoing talks with the U.S. remain "constructive" despite the threat of punitive tariffs on Canadian-made cars if Canada spurns the prospect of a new North American Free Trade Agreement come Friday. "It was a very constructive meeting with Ambassador (Robert) Lighthizer and his team and we'll be back again tomorrow," said Freeland. In the meantime, Canada-focused ETFs could be poised to gain, such as iShares MSCI Canada ETF (EWC) , JPMorgan BetaBuilders Canada ETF (BBCA) and Invesco CurrencyShares Canadian Dollar (FXC) .
Mexico's government made its position clear Monday that Canada needs to be at the negotiating table, a position the Trump administration isn't necessarily against, Canadian American Business Council CEO Maryscott Greenwood said during CNBC's "Squawk Box" segment Tuesday. Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland is in Washington to oversee an "intensive week" of trilateral talks that could lead to an agreement for all three countries as early as this week.

Is the Sell-Off in US Aluminum Producers Justified? Last week, President Trump temporarily exempted some countries from the Section 232 tariffs. According to the Commerce Department, the United States imported ~6 million metric tons of aluminum in 2016.
The U.S. president made good on his word and signed two orders imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, while excluding Canada and Mexico as negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are a work in progress. The decision had ripple effects across the semiconductor sector and prompted investors to act with caution, while ETFs linked to Canada completed the podium. Corporate bonds were sought after as a way to divest from risky assets and emerging markets equities came in last for the week.
President Trump formalized a blanket tariff of 25% on all steel imports and 10% on all aluminum imports. Canada exports the most steel to the US. In the first 11 months of 2017, Canada accounted for 16% of the US steel imports (X) (AKS). Overall, 25% of the US steel imports (MT) came from NAFTA during the same period.
One of the key reasons for tariffs is to protect domestic industries, jobs, and consumption. Tariffs inflate costs for consumers and protect inefficient domestic companies from global competition. Consumers could be forced to purchase expensive steel from US producers to avoid a 25% tariff, but domestically produced steel could be more expensive than global steel.
