The city of Prince Albert is throwing support behind the federal government during NAFTA negotiations with the United States surrounding softwood lumber.
A motion put forward by Ward 7 Coun. Dennis Nowoselsky at Tuesday’s council meeting called for Mayor Greg Dionne to urge the government to negotiate a deal which guarantees the U.S. access to Canadian softwood.
With the fourth round NAFTA re-negotiation discussions underway, Nowoselsky said his motion asks Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to gather more input from the country’s municipalities.
