image for Canada-U.S. deal could come by the weekend, Trump and Mexican official hint, as Trudeau digs in

Trudeau, who has usually taken pains to avoid criticizing Trump, argued that Trump’s behaviour makes it especially important for Canada that any deal include an independent dispute resolution system.

“We need to keep the Chapter 19 dispute resolution because that ensures that the rules are actually followed.

And we know we have a president who doesn’t always follow the rules as they’re laid out,” Trudeau told Edmonton’s 630 CHED radio.

He suggested that he was optimistic about the talks, hinting that there could be a deal by the weekend.

“A lot of people are saying, ‘How are you doing with Canada?’ We’ll let you know.

Trump added, though, that it would be fine for the U.S. and “won’t be fine for Canada” if no deal were reached.

Trudeau said the exemption is needed to allow Canada to block American companies from trying to take over Canadian media entities. »

If Earth’s magnetic field resembles that of a bar magnet, Jupiter’s field looks like someone took a bar magnet, bent it in half and splayed it at both ends.

“We were baffled” at the finding, says study coauthor Kimberly Moore, a graduate student at Harvard University.

The new look at Jupiter’s magnetic field comes courtesy of NASA’s Juno spacecraft, which has been orbiting the planet since July 2016 (SN: 6/25/16, p. 16). »
