Wynne: American politicians have ''deeper understanding" than expected

Kathleen Wynne says American political leaders are showing a strong understanding of how important Canada is to the health of the US auto sector.

The premier met with auto industry leaders in Toronto yesterday.

She says her government has been talking to American lawmakers about how much American auto sector jobs depend on free trade with Canada.

Wynne says American politicians have shown a deeper understanding of how interconnected the two countries are than the Liberals had expected.
