“From the very beginning, the EU offer has been not just a Canada deal, but a 'Canada plus plus plus' deal. Much further-reaching on trade, on internal security and on foreign policy cooperation. This is a true measure of respect. And this offer remains in place,” said Tusk in a prepared statement.

By "Canada plus plus plus," Tusk is referring to a souped-up free-trade agreement — like the one that the EU has with Canada but with add-ons."
