Cogeco said its Canadian broadband revenue grew 2.2 per cent in the three months ending Nov. 30, amid demand for residential high-speed internet for remote work, school and entertainment, as well as price hikes in June in Ontario and December in Quebec. Radio revenue fell 13 per cent in the quarter compared with the year-ago period, as retailers cut their ad campaigns.

Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. — Alimentation Couche-Tard isn't waving the white flag despite the French government's objection to its efforts to acquire grocery giant Carrefour. Company founder Alain Bouchard is in France and is getting help from the Quebec government to allay political fears, Economy and Innovation Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon said Friday. France's finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, said Friday that he's opposed to the potential $25-billion transaction, citing the country's food security. Fitzgibbon said there appears to be an "agreement in principle" with senior management at Carrefour and some of its largest shareholders, but the matter is now "political." Dollarama Inc. (TSX:DOL). Down 56 cents or 1.1 per cent to $51.37. Quebec's workplace safety board has issued fines to nine Dollarama locations in the province for failing to respect sanitary guidelines. The Commission des normes, de l'equite, de la sante et de la securite du travail visited 68 Dollarama locations since March 2020 and issued 11 fines to the nine locations, the agency said Thursday. The CNESST has issued 124 "correction notices" to Dollarama facilities since last March. The agency's announcement comes after Dollarama workers held protests last year decrying a lack of sanitary measures at the company's facilities. Trevali Mining Corp. (TSX:TV). Down two cents or 7.8 per cent to 23.5 cents. Trevali Mining Corp. says it plans to reopen its Caribou Mine near Bathurst, N.B., after idling it 10 months ago amid poor zinc prices, but will operate it with a workforce of about 250, down from about 400 employees and contractors before it was closed. The Vancouver-based miner says it expects to return to mining in early February, with first payable zinc production expected by the end of March. Chief financial officer Brendan Creaney says zinc prices have rebounded from about 82 cents US per pound when mine production stopped to the current level between US$1.20 and US$1.30 and Trevali has contracted about 80 per cent of Caribou's volumes for two years to remove price risk.

    Aphria excited about Biden, U.S. legalization as it reports Q2 loss

    TORONTO — Aphria Inc. chief executive Irwin Simon is seeing green as Democrat Joe Biden prepares to be sworn in as president of the United States next week.Simon said Thursday that he has his sights set on the burgeoning U.S. pot market for the Leamington, Ont.,-based cannabis company."The recent election will likely provide a stronger near-term potential for change of federal cannabis regulations and at Aphria we are ready and well-positioned for it," he told a conference call with financial analysts to discuss the company's latest financial results."We expect change to happen faster and decisions to be made sooner under the new Democratic leadership."Simon's excitement around the market matches many of Aphria's competitors who have been brimming with anticipation ahead of Biden's inauguration.Biden's party is behind the Safe Banking Act, a bill that will allow financial institutions to work with cannabis companies without retribution, and he and runningmate Kamala Harris have spoken in favour of decriminalizing pot and expunging criminal records related to its possession.Through U.S. ballot questions, five states — Arizona, New Jersey, South Dakota, Mississippi and Montana — also recently voted in favour of legalizing recreational or medical cannabis.Simon is positioning Aphria to take advantage of these developments with scalable infrastructure it got its hands on through a US$300-million acquisition of Atlanta-based SweetWater Brewing Co. in November. Sweetwater has also given Aphria access to network of mostly U.S. relationships that include 29,000 retailers, more than 10,000 restaurants and bars and even Delta airlines.Simon believes both will come in handy as sentiment around cannabis changes in the U.S. He says at least 68 per cent of Americans are already in favour of legalization Simon's remarks came roughly a month after he announced his company will soon merge with Nanaimo-based rival Tilray Inc. and together become the biggest cannabis company by revenue.If the deal closes as expected in the second quarter of 2021, Simon will lead the new company, which will use the Tilray name and will trade on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol TLRY.In the months leading up to the deal, Aphria said Thursday that it incurred a loss of $120.6 million or 42 cents per share, compared with a loss of $7.9 million or three cents per share a year earlier.Net revenue in what was the second quarter of Aphria's financial year totalled $160.5 million, up from $120.6 million.On an adjusted basis, Aphria says it earned $3.2 million a penny per share for the three months ended Nov. 30 compared with an adjusted loss of $48.8 million or 19 cents per share in the same quarter a year earlier.Analysts on average had expected an adjusted loss of three cents per share and $154 million in revenue, according to financial data firm Refinitiv.The results pushed Aphria's stock up to $15.25, an increase of almost 20 per cent or $2.55.
