Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade AgreementPublished on 5 June 2017 Hansard and Statements by Senator Percy Downe
Hon. Percy E. Downe:
I have a question for Senator Harder.
During the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Committee’s study on the CETA agreement, we were advised there was some urgency to it. The committee did their work very well, but we had a sense of that urgency. We were advised that if a deal was approved by the Senate and received Royal Assent, it would be likely within four weeks before it was approved and came into force. Do you have an update on that situation with the Europeans?
