Canada is pushing back against U.S. attempts to change the text of their September trade pact and the issue may have to be referred to ministers to settle, a Canadian source with direct knowledge of the matter said on Thursday.

“We are having discussions around the interpretation of a variety of things,” said the Canadian source.
