"That is the primary criteria with which any negotiation that takes place will comply." Scope must expand Consensus was growing that trade deals need to consider issues like the environment and labor rights, Canada's trade minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said on the sidelines. "Around the table, the word 'progressive' appears more and more... it is becoming part of what people would consider as a base in order to progress," he said.

Looking at differences through time can often be more helpful than trying to understand a single image. The study, which is the longest and deepest of its kind, began with a phone tip six years ago.
