The head of the European parliament and Canada's trade minister held last-ditch talks on October 22 aimed at salvaging a trade deal threatened by a Belgian region's refusal to sign on. EU assembly chief Martin Schulz also planned an 11th-hour huddle with Paul Magnette, head of Wallonia's socialist government which is blocking the agreement between Ottawa and the 28-nation European Union.
