Canada slams U.S. on steel, sunset clause as NAFTA talks heat up

WASHINGTON, April 25 (Reuters) - Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Wednesday reiterated Canada’s opposition to proposed U.S. steel tariffs due to come into force next week, as pressure mounts to seal a quick deal on updating NAFTA.

Freeland also told reporters that Canada remained against the U.S. idea of introducing a sunset clause that would allow one of the three North American Free Trade Agreement members to quit the pact after five years. (Reporting by David Lawder Writing by David Ljunggren)
