The new North American trade agreement isn't even in effect yet and the Trump administration is warning Canada and Mexico might face legal actions under the pact.

That threat came from U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer during hours of hearings Wednesday in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

Lighthizer said U.S. neighbours can expect to have cases launched against them if they fail to meet their commitments after the agreement takes effect July 1.
