Canadian shares pick up after yesterday’s fall


Having dropped on Tuesday, Canadian stocks are making a comeback as consumer discretionary and technology shares helped the benchmark to rise by 0.3% at 9:45 am Toronto time. Meanwhile, in Alberta, a C$2 billion partial-upgrading facility to process the province’s bitumen could be in the pipeline. It would be built near Edmonton, the region’s capital, and would be able to turn over 75,000 barrels every day into higher-value products like ultra-low sulfur diesel and medium synthetic crude.
