Between the U.S. election and Britain's exit from the European Union (EU), the future of certain trade deals seems concerning.

Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) president Ron Bonnett says both of these political events have created uncertainty around deals like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the Canada-EU Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement (CETA).

Bonnett says the CFA continues conversations with the Canadian government and several farm organizations from other countries to discuss concerns over these trade files.

"One of the things I think that's really got to be looked at with these large multi-lateral agreements, like the TPP and CETA if they don't go ahead, what is going to be the strategy going forward?" He says. "Do we identify individual countries that we should start doing bilateral deals with so we can at least have access to some of our key markets?"

In terms of the TPP specifically, because of the size of the U.S. market, Bonnett says the U.S. would need to ratify the deal in order for it to go ahead with the other Pacific Rim countries. However, according to many reports, both Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump have expressed they do not support the TPP.

"I'm hoping that once the election is over, there will be some sober second thought about taking a look at the TPP, and NAFTA from that perspective, and really analyze whether the political rhetoric is something that needs to be followed, or if there has to be a more realistic view taken," Bonnett says.

The U.S. election will take place on Nov. 8.
