Chrystia Freeland won’t commit yet to Feb. 4 TPP signing

CBC NEWS – Politics

Canadian government’s decision still stumbles after long talks, and especially now that the deadline is approaching. Although they have expressed their interests in becoming part of the deal, and recognized that this is for the best of Canada’s economy, they still have lots to learn from the endless agreement document. Canadian stakeholders said they’re starting to digest the benefits and relevant points of the agreement to them. Recall the farm industry imposed a strong refusal in early 2015 throughout October and November. Timing is very important as the largest economies (US and Japan) need to ratify the agreement in order for it to take effect, and they only have two years to do so. If the final outcome slows its pace, this will represent a legacy from Obama’s tenure in the U.S.
