Canadian apparel major Reitmans cancelled its contract with a Chinese firm after a CBC report claimed that Dandong Huayang Textiles was using forced North Korean labour. The report said that North Korea 'guest' workers in distressing conditions are common in the border city of Dandong. CBC said that it might be in violation of 2017 United Nations Security Council sanctions which ban employment of North Koreans to prevent funding to Pyongyang's illegal nuclear and missile programmes. Reitmans said that it will remove all remaining inventory which originated from this supplier and give it to charity. Watch the full video for more.
