Trade Issues Likely Topic During North American Leaders Summit

Leaders of U.S., Mexico, Canada likely to avoid public discussion of NAFTA, but trade will be an issue at summit today.

President Obama travels to Ottawa today for a meeting with the leaders of Canada and Mexico.

The discussions are likely to include trade issues, which have been a contentious topic in the U.S. presidential campaign, especially the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA.)

But the director of the Canada Institute at the non-partisan Woodrow Wilson Center, Laura Dawson, tells WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter NAFTA may not even be addressed publicly during the summit.
