The trade agreement between the European Union and Canada has cleared a big hurdle in the EU's parliament when the trade committee backed the deal and prepared it for full ratification next month.

After the deal was signed in October, it still needs ratification by the EU's Parliament. The trade committee backed it by a 25-15 margin with one abstention on Tuesday. The full legislature will vote on it next month.
