In return for concessions on dairy, Canada could request USA concessions on the so-called Chapter 19 dispute resolution mechanism that allows Canada to combat us anti-dumping duties that Ottawa regards as unjustified.

"In some countries, including Canada, a tax on cars would be the ruination of the country".

Ottawa and Washington are trying to reach an agreement that could be submitted to the U.S. Congress by month's end.

USA farmers complain Canada is flooding export markets.

But Larry Kudlow, the director of U.S. President Donald Trump's National Economic Council, suggested Friday that Canada isn't offering enough.

With so much uncertainty, Freeland and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have regularly been dogged by questions about the fate of NAFTA.

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland speaks to the media as she arrives at the Office Of The United States Trade Representative, Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, in Washington.

A late day comment from Pres. Trump boosted the precious metal and the Canadian dollar where he said "Trade talks going well".

The U.S. has said it plans to present Congress with the deal it has with Mexico if Canada doesn't get on board.

Trump sounded a more upbeat note earlier, and said he expected to know whether a deal could be struck to include Canada in the next few days. "You can't fix NAFTA without fixing issues with Canada", said Senator Ron Wyden, the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, which oversees trade.

"I think it is good for him in the short term".

The director of public Affairs of Teamsters Canada, Christopher Monette, who attended behind-the-scenes to the most recent negotiations in Washington, believes that the administration, Trump would not touch the system of supply management, particularly as it relates to the dairy industry.

"It seems even if we give a lot, the USA keeps asking for more", said Mr. Kronby, an global trade lawyer with Borden Ladner Gervais. "I can't read the tea leaves, but. coming back and saying, "Sorry, we couldn't get an agreement" is just too hard politically to manage" on both sides, Sosnow said. "It can't be renamed something or called something else", Perdue said when asked about dairy concessions needed to reach a NAFTA deal, referring to a new milk class created past year by Canada to price milk ingredients such as protein concentrates, skim milk and whole milk powder.

With the Mexico deal in hand, and Trudeau publicly indicating that Canada's red-line issues are Chapter-19 and cultural industries, the Americans have considerable leverage, he added.

"President, I recommend we accept this deal with Canada; it's not ideal, but it's a good deal, ' then I think he takes it,"' Mulroney said.

The officials have held two weeks of talks but ended Friday afternoon without reaching an agreement that would keep Canada in the three-nation pact. "That's not who we are", Craft said in prepared remarks.

Canadian officials have said they are working on the assumption that they have until the end of September to make a deal.
