Canada, Britain strike new trade deal before Brexit deadline

Canada and Britain have struck a new trade deal, beating the Dec. 31 Brexit deadline that would have triggered new tariffs on a range of Canadian exports. The interim deal will replace Canada's current agreement with Britain under the European Union that covers trade between the two countries, until a new formal agreement can be negotiated in the coming year. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, announced the deal during a live video news conference on Saturday morning along with their trade ministers, including Canada’s Mary Ng.
