Global Markets: Canadian Liberals deliver speech from the throne

By MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, Dec. 5 (MarketsFarm) – The following is a glance at the news moving markets in Canada and globally.

– Canada’s Liberal government will deliver a speech from the throne today, as Parliament returns to session. Governor General Julie Payette will read the speech from the Senate chamber, and the speech will communicate the Liberal government’s agenda for the coming years. “I think the speech has to strike a balance between the Liberal election promises and reflecting the mood of the country in terms of the results. It wasn’t a wholesale endorsement for the Liberals,” said Greg MacEachern, a Liberal strategist, to CBC.

– United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has instructed the House Judiciary panel to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. Pelosi said the president has “seriously violated” the constitution, according to Reuters.

– Citizens of the United Kingdom will go to the polls next Thursday, essentially voting on the future of Brexit after the country was granted a third delay by the European Union. The U.K. was originally supposed to leave the European Union in March 2019. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that the public “could soon stop talking about Brexit” if his Conservative party wins next week’s election.
