(BC-NAFTA-Threats)

Canada's international trade minister says it's best not to react to every comment made about NAFTA.

Francois-Philippe Champagne spoke at the B-C Chamber of Commerce today, saying renewed threats from U-S President Donald Trump to tear up the North American Free Trade Agreement are nothing to get worked up about.

He says there have already been several moves to modernize the deal since it first came into effect in the 1990's.

NAFTA negotiations between Canada, the United States and Mexico are scheduled to resume later this week. (The Canadian Press)

The respite will last until the U-S Commerce Department announces a final duty decision on September 7th. (The Canadian Press)

The U-N panel says construction began on Site C despite the vigorous opposition of Indigenous Peoples who would be affected by the massive hydroelectric dam on the Peace River in northeastern B-C.

It says a full review should be conducted in collaboration with Indigenous Peoples, who fear irreversible damage to their lands due to flooding. (The Canadian Press)
