According to Premier John Horgan, the new United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement offers more pros than cons for British Columbians.
In a joint statement with Minister of Trades Bruce Ralston, the Premier commended the agreement for providing stability and preserving the independant resolution system.
While the US tariffs on Canadian steel, aluminum, and softwood lumber remain, the Premier says the system will prove essential in efforts to challenge them.
Horgan did, however, echo concerns from the BC dairy industry over giving the US access to 3.6 percent of the market, and eliminating a pricing strategy that balanced costs of Canadian and American skim products.
The statement went on to say that the province will continue to urge the federal government to find solutions to the current tariff issues, but that having the agreement in place can only ease that process.
