Sept. 14 (CNS Canada) – The following is a glance at the news moving markets in Canada and globally.


– North Korea issued threats to Japan and the United States earlier this morning for their support of United Nations sanctions and a resolution passed by the UN security council. North Korea said Japan “should be sunken into the sea…” and the United States should be reduced to “ashes and darkness.”


– United States President Donald Trump is denying claims by Democrats that a deal had been reached to protect the so-called dreamer immigrants, those that arrived illegally in the U.S. as children. He also denied a border security deal had been reached that excluded building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.


– Canada is pushing for provisions in the North American Free Trade Agreement that would change how business lawsuits filed against governments would be heard. Canada wants to make the NAFTA process more like the system it has in its free trade deal with Europe, in which a panel of judges hear the cases instead of independent arbitrators.
