Canada has agreed on a trade deal with the U.S. and Mexico, preserving the North American Free Trade agreement after more than a year of difficult negotiations

CNN reports, “The US and Canadian governments agreed to a deal that would allow US farmers greater access to Canada’s dairy market and address concerns about potential auto tariffs just hours before a self-imposed midnight deadline, a US official and a Canadian official told CNN late Sunday.”

With the new deal comes a new name: the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

Vegas Marks Shooting Anniversary 

The Vegas Strip will go dark tonight to mark the first anniversary of a shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival, in which 58 people died and more than 850 were wounded.

The names of the victims will be read at a memorial, and flags will fly at half-staff across Nevada all day. The event is the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

The shooting touched off a debate over so-called bump stocks, which modify weapons to allow them to fire like automatic guns. There are reports the government was under pressure to ban them before the shooting took place.

Victims of Indonesian Earthquake, Tsunami Buried in Mass Graves

Authorities in Indonesia have begun burying some of the nearly 850 people killed when a 7.5 magnitude earthquake trigged a massive tsunami. Some remote areas remain unreachable nearly four days later, and officials fear the death toll will rise significantly.

Hardest hit were the island of Sulawesi and the resort town of Palu. The BBC reports that a mass grave was being dug, intended to hold up to 1,300 bodies. Reports detail family members unzipping body bags in attempt to identify loved ones.
