Senate to decide on fate of tanker ban, Liberals leaving U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade bill until last minute
The CUSMA trade deal bill was just introduced in the House, but Senators should already be familiar with the deal, says the deputy facilitator of the Independent Senators Group, Raymonde Saint-Germain.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held a press conference with U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence during his visit to Ottawa on May 30. The two discussed the trade deal agreed to between the two countries and Mexico last fall. The Liberal government finally tabled a bill to implement the deal in the House last week, but has not yet begun to advance it through Parliament, with just three more sittings weeks scheduled for the House.
