Canada, EU to sign free-trade deal

Canada and the European Union reach an agreement in principle on a free-trade deal that will give Canadian businesses preferential access to an EU market of 500M consumers.

Canada expects duty-free access of its seafood, lumber, manufacturing, beef, pork, wheat and mineral sectors to the EU would generate ~$12B in the Canadian economy; Europe would face eliminated tariffs on exports including clothing, cheese, wine, dairy products and more.

While many major Canadian companies and exporters lobbied hard for the pact, others such as dairy producers in Quebec and Ontario are opposed.
