Canada foreign minister: deal to update NAFTA is still possible

OTTAWA, June 19 (Reuters) - The Canadian government believes a deal to update the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is still possible despite a U.S. move to impose tariffs on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Tuesday.

Freeland also told legislators that she was convinced there was goodwill and a desire to modernize NAFTA as negotiations on revamping the 1994 pact have effectively stalled while Canada and Mexico struggle to accommodate U.S. demands for major changes.
