Canada confident Italy will eventually ratify CETA, Freeland

Americans favor Trudeau over Trump on trade policy: poll | TheHill

In an interview with the newspaper La Stampa, the country's new agriculture minister, Gian Marco Centinaio of the far-right League, said he would ask parliament not to ratify the trade agreement the European Union negotiated with Canada in 2016.

In an interview with Italy's daily La Stampa, Centinaio said CETA didn't ensure sufficient protection for the country's speciality foods.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump". A spokesman for Francois-Philippe Champagne says the worldwide trade minister visited Italy a few days ago to pitch the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement, or CETA, to Italy's populist government, which took power on June 1. Under CETA, Canada has recognized more than 40 Italian PDO and PGI labels out of a total of 292 for the food-obsessed country.

In April, the Brussels-based European Union executive put forward a proposed free trade agreement with Japan for fast-track approval, hoping to avoid a repeat of the public protests that almost derailed the CETA trade pact with Canada two years ago.

Not surprisingly, 81% of Canadians said they feel Trump is acting "erratically" and "damaging trust between allies."Two thirds of Canadians feel that the latest escalations between the two countries will lead to an all-out trade war between the two nations". Coldiretti also mentioned risks posed by the annulment of duties on Canadian wheat, a country where the herbicide glyphosate can be used.

Some farm associations and critics in European states have expressed concerns about the threat of rapidly rising pork and beef imports from Canada.

Additional comments from Italy's new government - made up of the far-right League and the anti-establishment Five-Star movement - were not immediately available.

Italy has 221 protected products, that is, the highest in the EU.

While US President Donald Trump may not have spoken very highly of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau following the recent G7 Summit in Quebec, Canadians are pleased with how Trudeau handled - and continues to handle - the situation according to a new Angus Reid poll.

Trump says his tariffs are meant to protect US industry and workers from unfair global competition as part of his "America First" agenda.
