Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada's ties with the US have always required constant upkeep, but are now getting what she calls ``constant gardening'' to keep supply lines open.

She says Canadian diplomats are repeating the message that the U-S needs Canada as much as Canada needs the US.

This morning, the US issued draft rules stating companies will be allowed to fill existing orders for foreign clients, provided 80 per cent of their domestic production was allocated to the US market over the previous 12 months.
