Bibeau meets with Saskatchewan farmers, urges end to CN rail strike


REGINA — Canada’s agriculture minister is urging Canadian National Railway Co. and its workers to reach a deal to alleviate the impact the ongoing strike is having on farmers.

Marie-Claude Bibeau delivered remarks at the Canadian Western Agribition show in Regina, where she also met with producers.

She says she’s heard from farmers about how the strike is affecting them.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe has called on the federal government to intervene in the strike and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has requested Parliament be recalled to pass back-to-work legislation.

Moe has said the strike cannot drag on because it will mean job losses in agriculture.

More than 3,000 CN rail workers have been off work since early last week.

Cannabis company Canopy Growth delaying launch of infused beverages



SMITH FALLS, Ont. — Canopy Growth Corp. is delaying the launch of its cannabis-infused drinks.

The company says work to scale up to commercial production is not complete and it is delaying the launch date while it completes the final steps.

Canopy submitted its final documentation for its beverage facility to Health Canada last June and received its license in late November.

The company had expected to have its beverage products on store shelves in early January.  It did not say when it now plans to launch its beverage products.

Canopy says it does not believe the delay will have a material impact on its revenue for its 2020 financial year.

It says it plans to provide an update when it releases its third-quarter results.

“Canopy has had seven weeks to work with THC in the brand new beverage facility to scale processes and IP it has developed in the R&D environment,” Canopy chief executive David Klein said in a statement.

“In order to deliver products that meet our customer’s high standards we are electing to revise the launch date while we work through the final details.”
