Global Markets: Air quality plummets as fires rage on

By Commodity News Service Canada
Aug. 21 (CNS Canada) – The following is a glance at the news
moving markets in Canada and globally.
The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) in British Columbia’s Lower
Mainland area was reported late yesterday as being above 10,
which indicates a very high health risk, and is among the worst
ever recorded. More than 500 fires are burning across the
province, blanketing most of the province and Western Canada in
smoke.
United States President Donald Trump said he is concerned that

any statements he provides under oath to Special Counsel Robert
Mueller during the investigation into Russian interference in
the last presidential election will be used to bring perjury
charges against him. Trump did not comment on whether he would
eventually agree to the interview.
Iraq plans to ask the U.S. for exemptions to certain Iran
sanctions, citing the close ties between the two economies. The
U.S. withdrew from an international deal designed to limit
Iran’s nuclear program and restarted trade sanctions. It also
warned that countries that do business with Iran could face
trade retaliation from the U.S.
