Canada gearing up for NAFTA changes, response to U.S. border tax

HOUSTON, March 9 (Reuters) - Canada's Natural Resources minister said on Thursday night his government is ready to discuss changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States and Mexico.

Minister Jim Carr said Ottawa's view is that trade agreements "every now and then should be refreshed," responding to questions about the trade pact at a media briefing in Houston.
