Participating on behalf of client stakeholders and as a member of part Global Affairs Canada Indigenous Working Group, Michael Woods attended Round Six of the NAFTA negotiation in Montreal January 22-29.  During the week in Montreal, Michael had the opportunity to meet and exchange views with Canadian negotiators, the many other stakeholders in attendance, and members of the media [see photo of Michael and Don Newman].  On January 27, Michael attended a Canadian American Business Council (CABC) lunch where he met members of a senior delegation of the U.S. Congressional Ways and Means subcommittee on Trade.  The delegation was in Montreal to meet Canadian and Mexican officials and to get an in-person sense of the status of the negotiations [photo].  Led by Subcommittee Chair Dave Reichert (R-Washington), the delegation included Representatives Adrian Smith (R-Nebraska), Tom Rice (R-S.
