Afta NAFTA Rocky Road?
AFTA NAFTA Rocky Road?

That much talked about rework of NAFTA between USA, Mexico and Canada emerged Monday as U.S., Mexico, Canada Agreement or USMCA.
      While the new deal is being hailed by all, what emerges at first glance is a reworked NAFTA Agreement, in effect since 1994 that incudes among other things easement of dairy restrictions.
      That should make U.S. farmers happy as they gain access to what had been a closed Canadian market for ice cream and milk.
      There are also some auto issues including better pay for assembly line workers in Mexico.
The catch in all of this is need for government ratification of the deal by lawmakers in Mexico, Canada and USA.
      No chance for that before U.S. mid-term elections coming for the Senate and House of Representatives in a couple of weeks.
      The catch here is that the House currently controlled by Republicans, may go Democrat.
That would put Canadians wishing to scoop USA ice cream on a rocky road through Congress.
