Free trade negotiations subject of town hall meeting

The Cross-Border Institute will host a town hall meeting on the North American Free Trade Agreement on Wednesday, November 22, in the Joyce Entrepreneurship Centre.

Andrew Leslie, parliamentary secretary to Canada’s minister of foreign affairs, will be on hand for the meeting as part of the government’s consultation process and hopes to hear from the public about:

  • areas of the agreement that could be clarified;
  • areas that should be updates; and
  • any new sections that should form part of an emended agreement.

Leslie will provide an update on the status of negotiations and the impact they could have on Canada.

The session is expected to last one hour and will begin at 2 p.m. in the workshop room on the building’s second floor. Learn more about the government’s consultations on this issue.
