Companies in the news:
Air Canada (TSX:AC). Up seven cents to $15.87. A passenger rights company is calling on the country's transportation regulator to take a stand against airlines that bar travellers from engaging a third party to seek compensation until their claims have already been rejected. So called "contact airline first" clauses stipulate that passengers seeking compensation must initially reach out to the airline themselves, rather than filing a claim through a law firm, company or advocacy group. Air Canada customer Steve Pereira hopes to force legal clarity on the issue with a case now before the Canadian Transportation Agency, though a backlog of thousands of complaints could delay the outcome.
Lundin Mining Corp. — Canadian miner Lundin Mining Corp. says it will hold safety stand-downs at all of its operations over the coming days to allow staff to reflect on a fatal accident Friday at its Neves-Corvo Mine in Portugal. In an update, the company says operations at the underground copper and zinc mine are expected to resume by mid-week after being suspended following the accident. Separately, Lundin reported that processing activities at its Chapada open pit copper-gold mine in Brazil have been interrupted due to damage at its main electrical substation following a power outage on Sunday morning.
