Companies reporting major news:
Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP). Transportation. Down $11.50, or 6.52 per cent, to $164.93 on 725,264 shares. Canadian Pacific Railway has welcomed a court ruling limiting its liability from lawsuits triggered by the transporting of dangerous goods, which could help the company in legal action related to the deadly explosion and fire in Lac-Megantic, Que. The Federal Court of Appeal ruled last month that a tariff demanded by CP from shipping companies is reasonable and legal. The tariff states the company cannot be held liable for any claims, including death or environmental damage, caused during the transportation of hazardous, toxic inhalants, unless it is found to be solely negligent or guilty of wilful misconduct.
