Trudeau says Canada to remain the same as previous Trump term in office, should former president return in 2024

Asked whether Canada was concerned about looming "America-first protectionism" returning in 2024, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday that Canada's stance would remain the same as it was during the previous Trump administration. "The protectionism against Canadian investors or Canadian companies actually ends up hurting U.S. companies and U.S. workers in significant ways — that's the argument we used to successfully re-negotiate our NAFTA (CUSMA) deal," Trudeau said.
