MONTREAL – Canada will host an annoyed and angry United States as the sixth round of NAFTA talks unfold in Montreal over the next week.

Officials in the Trump administration are making clear their displeasure about Canada’s contributions to date, and demanding progress over the marathon session.

The acrimony has a variety of causes, including Canada’s recent decision to file a sweeping complaint about U.S. trade practices, and its pursuit of a progressive trade agenda that includes Indigenous provisions.

The proposed Indigenous chapter will be discussed for the first time this week.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is scheduled to arrive in Montreal next Monday, along wiith her American and Mexican counterparts.

Officials from all three countries want to see tangible progress this week to keep negotiations on track and discourage the U-S from pulling out of the trade pact.
