Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Monday he does not expect the new U.S. administration to push for a major reworking of the North American Free Trade Agreement, despite President-elect Barack Obama's campaign pledge to renegotiate the deal.


Harper said it would be a big mistake to tear up the 14-year-old agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico and put up new barriers to trade at a time when the world economy in crisis.
