WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA). Unchanged at $19.04. The Federal Court of Canada has ordered a second senior employee at WestJet Airlines to testify under oath in a predatory pricing investigation into WestJet and its budget subsidiary, Swoop, by Canada’s competition watchdog. The inquiry, launched by the Competition Bureau in the fall, concerns allegations the two airlines used anti-competitive practices to crowd out B.C.-based upstart Flair Airlines from at least three routes last year.
Freshii Inc. (TSX:FRII). Down three cents to $2.02. Freshii’s chief financial officer will depart from the company early next month as the eatery chain grapples with recent lacklustre performance. Craig De Pratto, who joined the company in 2014, informed Freshii he will resign “to pursue another opportunity,” the company said in a statement Monday. It did not include details on his new position. De Pratto played a central role in a period of rapid growth for Freshii, the company said, including its initial public offering in 2017.
Restaurant Brands International Inc. (TSX:QSR). Down $1.35 to $88.14. Cold weather and an outdated roll-up-the-rim-to-win promotion slowed sales at Canadian Tim Hortons locations in its most recent quarter, said Jose Cil, CEO of the coffee chain’s parent company, prompting Restaurant Brands to revamp the contest for next year. Comparable store sales at Tim Hortons fell 0.6 per cent worldwide, and 0.4 per cent in Canada. Cil said added giveaways did not drive the engagement the company expected and dragged down comparable sales about 0.5 per cent over the quarter.
