What does the new US-Canada trade deal mean for Whatcom? Here are some possibilities

The new trade deal, reached late Sunday night, will be called the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA. If approved by all three countries it will replace the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement.
