CABA Submits Comment to Canadian Government on NAFTA
– For Immediate Release –
New York, NY, June 21, 2018: The Canadian American Bar Association (CABA) answered the Canadian Ministry of Finance’s call this month for public comment on Canada’s newly-announced tariffs and the ongoing NAFTA renegotiation.
CABA’s submission provides CABA’s perspective on the national security exception that was used by the United States to impose tariffs on Canada (and other countries). The submission critiques NAFTA’s vague language and proposes revised wording that aims to limit a state’s recourse to the exception to only more clearly defined instances of a national security threat.
