The Liberals will kick start the process of ratifying the new NAFTA trade deal when the House of Commons returns next week.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke in a press conference from Winnipeg, Man., where the Liberal cabinet has been meeting over recent days.

He said a ways and means motion — a needed first-step for fiscal bills — will be introduced on Monday while the bill to ratify the deal will come on Wednesday.

“Passing the new NAFTA is our priority,” said Trudeau.

Trudeau also discussed the ongoing Iran plane crash investigation and spoke about the Canadians detained in China.
