OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will not be flying to Brussels on Wednesday night because a free trade deal he was supposed to sign with the European Union on Thursday is not finished yet, an official said.

“Canada remains ready to sign this important agreement when Europe is ready,” said Alex Lawrence, a spokesman for Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland.
