By Mike Blanchfield The Canadian Press Thu., Dec. 20, 2018 OTTAWA—There will be drama. Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland took pains to predict that in a lengthy August 2017 speech that spelled out Canada’s goals at the start of the North American Free Trade Agreement talks with Mexico and the volatile Trump administration. “I chose my words really carefully because you didn’t have to be a rocket scientist to anticipate that there would be moments of drama,” Freeland recalled in an interview. “We knew there would be moments where we had to fasten our seatbelts, and I think what was important was to be mentally prepared for those moments, and not to be knocked off course by them.” Ultimately, Canada’s foreign minister led the country’s efforts to salvage a new North American free trade deal. That white-knuckle ride earned Freeland the title of Canada’s Business Newsmaker of the Year for 2018. … [Read more...] about NAFTA drama earns Chrystia Freeland CP’s Business Newsmaker of 2018

Marohn is billed as the conservative of the pair, Brown the liberal. Heidi Holton, the station’s news and public affairs director, moderates.
