Iowa's Stake in NAFTA Renegotiations

Mar 2, 2018

The U.S., Canada, and Mexico are heading into the seventh round of renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. President Donald Trump has called it “the worst trade deal in history” and has at times called for ending the program.

During this River to River conversation, host Ben Kieffer talks with Paul Connors, Canada’s Consul General, about Iowa’s trading relationship with Canada. According to Connors, 100,000 jobs in Iowa depend on a positive trade relationship with our neighbors to the north. 

During the second half of the broadcast, he talks with Judge Douglas Russell, an expert on the life and times of Winston Churchill about the new movie "The Darkest Hour."
