Companies in the news:
Suncor Energy Inc. — The chief executive of Suncor Energy Inc. said the company must do more to improve workplace safety after a truck crash earlier this month resulted in the death of a contractor at the company's Base Mine site near Fort McMurray, Alta. Mark Little, CEO of the Calgary-based company, called the fatality — along with two other operational incidents in December that negatively affected Suncor's production volumes — "unacceptable."
WestJet Airlines Inc. — WestJet Airlines Inc. said Tuesday it will cancel 20 per cent of its February flights, less than three weeks after announcing flight reductions of 15 per cent for January. The move marks a response to "government barriers" amid the Omicron variant, which has also affected staffing levels, the Calgary-based airline said. While Air Canada has not announced major flight consolidations, it has cancelled 15 per cent of its flights in March and 11 per cent in February — 6,805 flights in total — within the last two weeks alone, according to figures from airline data company Cirium.
