Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Barack Obama walk together at the National Gallery of Canada at the start of the North American Leaders' Summit in OttawaBy Roberta Rampton and David Ljunggren OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada, the United States and Mexico on Wednesday vowed to deepen their economic ties, pushing back against anti-free-trade sentiment that has shifted political debate in the United States and Europe. The three nations are member of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has vowed to renegotiate or scrap if he wins November's election. U.S. President Barack Obama, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Enrique Pena Nieto, meeting at a "Three Amigos" summit in Ottawa, said an efficient North American economy was vital for creating good-paying, middle-class jobs.
