New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant says jobs and trade are on his mind as he prepares to join his counterparts at a Council of the Federation meeting this week in Edmonton.
Gallant says he believes the premiers and territorial leaders need to discuss how to expand export markets — and how they can contribute to a positive outcome in negotiations to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement.
U.S. President Donald Trump is poised to announce what he wants out of a re-negotiated deal as early as today.
The premiers also plan to discuss employment and economic growth, Canada-U.S. relations, infrastructure, the legalization of marijuana and justice.
