Global Markets: Israeli coalition faces vote to oust Netanyahu

By MarketsFarm

WINNIPEG, June 3 (MarketsFarm) – The following is a glance at the news moving markets in Canada and globally.

– The coalition to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still needs to pass a confidence vote in the country’s parliament, the Knesset, but is facing some delays as the incumbent’s party still has the power to delay a vote. The shaky coalition includes parties from across the political spectrum, including Arab Islamists, with the only real commonality the desire to oust Netanyahu.

– Starting Friday, international air passengers traveling to Canada will face a C$5,000 fine if they refuse to take the required COVID-19 test and quarantine in a designated hotel until they get their results. The fine marks a C$2,000 increase from the current level.

– The Canadian government will release its action plan in response to the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls on Thursday. The action plan comes two years after the report was issued. The 2020/21 federal budget included C$2.2 billion for implementing the inquiry’s recommendations.
