Companies in the news:
Canadian National Railway Co. (TSX:CNR). Down $1.28, or 0.88 per cent, to $144.39. The federal government is rolling out new measures to tighten rail safety following an investigation into a fatal 2017 incident at a Saskatchewan railway yard. Transport Minister Marc Garneau says a new ministerial order requires railway companies to adopt new practices for employees who conduct switching duties — taking railcars from one track to another — that ensure equipment is properly secured. Two Canadian National Railway Co. employees were carrying out switching duties at the company’s yard in Melville, Sask., 150 kilometres east of Regina, on Dec. 22, 2017, when one was fatally injured.
Air Canada (TSX:AC). Up 66 cents, or 4.1 per cent, to $16.76. Air Canada has raised nearly $500 million by selling and leasing back nine aircraft to help offset the cash drain from COVID-19. The Montreal-based airline said Thursday it has sold nine Boeing 737 Max 8 jets for $485 million, and long-term lease commitments of $458 million. The extra financial buoyancy comes after Air Canada saw passenger revenues drop 95 per cent in its second quarter, prompting 20,000 layoffs as the carrier burned through $19 million per day.
