Canada: No UK trade deal until after Brexit
Morneau was asked by the BBC whether the UK and Canada could strike a deal on the same terms as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) free-trade deal with the EU that took seven years to complete. The deal removes 99% of tariffs.
"We're going to respect the agreement that the UK has with Europe ... and stand ready to work together after that's concluded."
"Our expectation is that Britain will ratify the CETA deal and be part of that deal with Canada," Morneau said. ■
