TORONTO (AP) - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada will move next week to formally approve the new North American trade agreement.


Trudeau says the government will introduce a motion Jan. 27 when Parliament resumes, and will introduce legislation to ratify the deal two days later. Trudeau said millions of Canadians depend on stable, reliable trade with their largest trading partners.

Last week, the U.S. Senate passed its implementation bill of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
