The Calgary-based company said Thursday that it has confirmed enough commercial support for its controversial Keystone XL pipeline thanks in part to a commitment from the Alberta government. TransCanada said it has secured 500,000 barrels a day of 20-year commitments for the project after concluding an open season, locking up about 60 per cent of the 830,000 barrels of planned capacity.
WestJet Airlines Ltd. (TSX:WJA). Airline. Down 17 cents, or 0.67 per cent, to $25.17 on 436,397 shares. WestJet has filed an appeal after the Supreme Court of British Columbia refused to throw out a proposed class-action lawsuit that accuses the company of fostering a corporate culture that tolerates harassment against female employees. The airline argues Justice Mary Humphries was wrong to have dismissed the company’s application to strike the legal action, repeating its argument that the dispute belongs before a human rights tribunal and workers’ compensation board.
