Trading Sovereignty (Episode #864H)

KQED 9: Sun, Feb 4, 2018 -- 5:30 PM

There are less than eight weeks left before ongoing talks over the North American Free Trade Agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico are set to expire. Should an agreement not be reached, President Trump may decide to start the process of withdrawing from NAFTA, an option he has threatened to pursue. At the center of the dispute between the nations is a provision in the 1994 trade deal that allows foreign investors to sue governments by claiming that certain regulations and laws harm their business interests. Canada and Mexico want to keep the provision, but the Trump administration argues that the provision impinges on a country's ability to write its own laws, thus making it a threat to national sovereignty. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Patricia Sabga traveled to Trois-Rivieres, Canada, to learn more.

Dairy Wars (Episode #863H)

KQED 9: Sat, Feb 3, 2018 -- 5:30 PM

As the NAFTA renegotiations continue between Mexico, Canada and the United States, the dairy trade has emerged as one of many points of contention. While NAFTA opened a sizable market in Mexico for U.S. dairy farmers, the U.S. did not gain the same access to Canada. Now, as part of the ongoing NAFTA negotiations, the U.S. is asking Canada to dismantle its heavily protected dairy system and to allow American dairy producers entry into the Canadian market. The Canadians have called the request "aggressive" and "irrational" and U.S. dairy producers fear that if NAFTA falls apart it may well risk their greatest export market: Mexico. NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker reports.
