Obama reassures Canada on trade
Barack Obama is on his first international trip as US president, holding talks with Canadian leaders to quell fears that Washington is adopting a more protectionist stance on trade and to boost co-operation on environmentally sound energy technology.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Thursday he wanted to begin talks to add enforceable labour and environmental provisions to the North American Free Trade Agreement without disrupting trade.
