“Could the USMCA Hinder Future Trade Deals?” by Ronald Orol, cigionline.org

Cigionline.org quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer, Clifford Sosnow, in an article about the USMCA and if it could hinder future trade deals.

Clifford Sosnow, an Ottawa- and Toronto-based international trade law specialist and partner at Fasken, notes that there is nothing in the USMCA that prohibits Canada from negotiating a free trade deal with China. However, he notes that the United States can pull out of the USMCA if it doesn’t like a deal Canada signs with another country.

“If we don’t agree with what you, Canada, has signed we have the authority and right to walk away from our agreement and resuscitate a bilateral deal with Mexico,” Sosnow said.
