Freeland's remarks offer a glimpse into the political and legal heavy lifting set to follow Friday's signing of the trade pact - an agreement reached through hand-wringing negotiations and a ceremony confirmed only at the 11th hour.
There's New York, New York, the proverbial "city so nice they named it twice", but it's debatable whether the trade deal that Canada, Mexico and the United States signed Friday at the G20 summit will earn similar repetition.

"We do have to call it USMCA, that is what it is", she told CBC Toronto's Metro Morning on October 2 after the deal was agreed to in principle.
Trump has a high confidence that the U.S. Congress will approve the deal.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, U.S. President Donald Trump and his Mexican counterpart Enrique Pena Nieto presided over the signing of the new deal, known as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
Pena Nieto, who will handoff to his successor Saturday, said he was honored to be at the signing on the last day of his administration, saying it is the culmination of a long process "that allow us to overcome differences and to conciliate our visions". Trump acknowledged the often hard path during negotiations and praised the outcome. "We've taken a lot of barbs and a little abuse and we got there", Trump said after the signing.
"'Battle" over as Trudeau, Trump, Peña Nieto sign "new Nafta, '" said a headline from the CBC, the national broadcaster.
"In the coming months, Congress will have the opportunity to debate the details of USMCA and consider how it will impact workers and job creators in this country", Republican Senator Orrin Hatch said Friday in a statement, signaling that Congress will likely wait until next year to have a vote on the deal. In the USA, as Politico notes, that could mean "months of fierce debate between the Trump administration and Congress".
"I don't expect to have much of a problem", Trump said during the ceremony.
As of last week, Shonk said neither the US government, nor the Mexican government, made an effort to remove that language from the agreement.
With the signing, "the whole region becomes a good basis to invest in the vehicle industry", Jesus Seade, the NAFTA negotiator for Lopez Obrador, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television on Thursday night. There will have to be more investment by Toyota, Honda, Mercedes, and the Germans and Koreans. Such a move would have disrupted businesses that have built complicated supply chains that straddle the borders of the three countries. 'The Prime Minister also reinforced the importance of both countries lifting the tariffs on steel and aluminum'.
USMCA also leaves unresolved the US tariffs on steel and aluminium from Canada and Mexico.
"Not only have they conceded market access but they have also gone along with the U.S.to ensure we can not be competitive on any world markets where the U.S.is present", said David Wiens, vice-president of Dairy Farmers of Canada. Trump could threaten to unilaterally pull out of NAFTA if the new deal fails to get through Congress.
Trudeau pressed for a resolution to the tariff spat. Before signing the deal he continued to refer to as the new NAFTA, Trudeau told Trump the two should continue to work together to eliminate steel and aluminium tariffs. Trump gave no indication of his plans on the subject.
Mexican and Canadian officials had strongly objected to the tariffs when Trump imposed them June 1.
