This is a really first class example of why being a smaller, more agile, independent trading nation has its advantages. As you say, if one of 27 countries isn't happy with any aspect of a trade negotiation, it gets vetoed.

As for the clause where, if I read that correctly, the EU has to give approval for a trade deal between Canada and the UK, im amazed. In any other line of business that would be way outside whats legally allowed.
Unfortunately the mess the UK has made of implementing Brexit so far demonstrates it is not "a smaller, more agile, independent trading nation"!

A more accurate description would be "confused, elephantine and indecisive"?
