The result could be a brawl that sours efforts to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement, under which Canada sends most of its exports to the United States. Mexico is the pact’s third member. U.S. farmers have long chafed about supply management, the term for Canada’s system of tariffs and quotas to keep domestic prices high and imports low.
