Companies in the news:
TC Energy Corp. (TSX:TRP). Down $2.57 or 4.5 per cent to $54. Cancelling the multibillion-dollar Keystone XL pipeline expansion would not only jeopardize thousands of jobs in Alberta, it would also mean the loss of billions of dollars in corporate income taxes, carbon taxes and royalties, according to energy experts. TC Energy Corp.’s 1,947-kilometre project would carry crude oil from Hardisty, Alta., to Steele City, Neb. From there it would connect with the company’s existing facilities to reach the U.S. Gulf Coast — one of the world’s biggest oil refining hubs. Transition documents suggest Joe Biden will kill the controversial project as soon as Wednesday when he’s sworn in as U.S. president, rescinding a construction permit granted by predecessor Donald Trump.
Alimentation Couche-Tard — The convenience store chain remains open to a second chance to consummate a union with Carrefour if the French government has a change of heart about its opposition. But the company’s founder said it would look elsewhere in hopes of expanding and achieving its strategy to double its adjusted operating earnings by 2023. Couche-Tard abandoned its potential $25-billion offer for Carrefour after French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told the Quebec businessman that he refused to let a potential takeover proceed because he felt the deal would put food security at stake. Bouchard said he was surprised that Le Maire justified his opposition based on food security, even as the two sides were on the verge of a deal.
