The Vancouver-based telecommunications company revealed its net income attributable to common shares totalled $385 million or 28 cents per share in its first quarter, compared with $331 million or 25 cents per share a year ago. Operating revenues and other income rose to $4.28 billion compared with $4.02 billion in the first quarter of 2021.
Enbridge Inc. — Pipeline giant Enbridge Inc. will accelerate investments in low-carbon technologies as the war in Ukraine drives global concerns about energy supply and security, chief executive Al Monaco said Friday.

Stelco Holdings Inc. (TSX:STLC). Up eight cents to $44.74. Stelco Holdings Inc. beat expectations as it reported a strong quarter despite a challenging start to the year.

Excluding one-time items, adjusted profits were $268 million or $3.61 per share, up from $172 million or $1.94 per share in the first quarter of 2021.

Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX:DII.B). Down 89 cents or 11.3 per cent to $7.00. Dorel Industries Inc. shares plunged as the Montreal-based company lost money for a third-straight quarter on continued supply chain issues and high inflation. The maker of home furniture and products for young children says its net loss from continuing operations more than doubled to US$27.2 million in the first quarter, from US$12.8 million a year earlier.

Chorus Aviation Inc. (TSX:CHR). Down 11 cents or 2.9 per cent to $3.70. The head of Chorus Aviation Inc. says travellers are returning to the skies en masse, leaving the company poised to benefit after feeling the pinch of COVID-19's fifth wave last quarter. The Halifax-based company, which leases planes across the globe and provides regional service for Air Canada via Chorus subsidiary Jazz Aviation, will see its fleet "very fully utilized" this summer, including Jazz's 48 planes, CEO Joe Randell told analysts on a conference call Friday. Business travel, which yields fatter margins and a traditionally disproportionate share of ticket earnings, is also starting to come back after a much slower rebound than leisure trips. The company's net income of $22.9 million in the quarter ended March 31 marked a strong bounce-back from a loss of $38.1 million in the same period last year. And operating revenues rose 69 per cent to $342.4 million from $202.5 million. Adjusted net income of $17.7 million or 10 cents per basic share last quarter marked a jump from $15.7 million in 2021.
