Canada says EU's 'job' to save trade pact

Canada turned up the heat on the European Union Saturday, saying it was the bloc’s “job” to save a trade pact thrown into doubt by a Belgian region’s refusal to sign on. Chrystia Freeland, the Canadian trade minister, struck a firm tone after leaving last-ditch talks with European parliament head Martin Schulz aimed at salvaging the proposed accord that was seven years in the making. “Now the ball is in Europe’s court and it’s time for Europe to finish doing its job,” Freeland said, adding that she was returning to Canada on Saturday but still hoped to be able to come back on October 27 and sign the agreement.
