Canada's Trudeau says NAFTA deal possible by Friday

(Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday that it may be possible to reach a deal on NAFTA ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump's Friday deadline.

"We recognize that there is a possibility of getting there by Friday, but it is only a possibility, because it will hinge on whether or not there is ultimately a good deal for Canada," he said at a press conference in northern Ontario. "No NAFTA deal is better than a bad NAFTA deal."
