Canada heads into talks in Washington on Wednesday to renew NAFTA determined not to back down on key issues despite threats from U.S. President Donald Trump to retaliate against the Canadian economy unless Ottawa gives ground quickly.

Reuters reports Trump, fresh from his side deal with Mexico, the third member of the North American Free Trade Agreement, has said he is ready to slap auto tariffs on Canada or exclude the country from the pact altogether.

The two sides, which failed to settle their differences last week, are arguing over U.S. demands for more access to Canada’s closed dairy market.
