Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said Tuesday it was "eminently possible" that the United States and Canada would reach a deal to keep Ottawa in a revamped US-Mexican agreement announced in late August.

The two sides are still arguing over cultural protections, a USA demand for more access to the Canadian dairy market and a dispute resolution mechanism that Canada wants to keep and Washington insists be scrapped.

"We have seen various deadlines put forward as markers to work for", Mr. Trudeau said during a wrap-up of a governing Liberal Party retreat in Saskatoon. Some members of the U.S. Congress have also threatened to hold up a deal that excludes Canada.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Trump mused about renaming the trade pact "USMC" - with "M" referring to Mexico and "C" for Canada - based on his disdain for the NAFTA moniker.

He shrugged off Mr. Trump's suggested new name for NAFTA, saying it's not something he's thought about.
