WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA). Up 21 cents to $18.25. WestJet has apologized to passengers who spent an extra day and half in Mexico over the weekend, many without the hotel rooms the airline had said would be available following a cancelled flight from Cancun to Ottawa. About 150 passengers found themselves stranded on the Yucatan Peninsula Saturday after a pair of mechanical issues caused a four-hour flight delay and eventual cancellation.
TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP). Up five cents to $52.84. TransCanada Corp., the company behind the contentious Keystone XL oil pipeline, is changing its name to TC Energy. If approved by shareholders and regulators, TransCanada becomes TC Energy in the second quarter. The stock ticker “TRP” will not change. The Keystone XL project is being delayed by a federal court that found the Trump Administration didn’t fully consider the environmental effects when it approved the permit for the 1,900 kilometre pipeline, intended to ship up to 830,000 barrels a day of crude oil from Alberta, Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Bombardier Inc. Bombardier has signed a US$669-million deal to provide 113 commuter rail cars to New Jersey. The company says the contract will yield no additional work in Canada, with Buy American rules prompting Bombardier’s plant in Plattsburgh, N.Y., to build the multi-level cars, rather than its facility in Quebec. As of 2018, at least 65 per cent of the cost of components for public transit projects must be manufactured in the United States, with final assembly taking place on American turf as well.
