** Workers at Ford Motor Co of Canada Ltd have approved a new contract with the company, wrapping up 2016 contract negotiations between Unifor and the Canadian units of the Detroit Three automakers.

** Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to roll out a new environmental protection regime for British Columbia's coast as early as Monday. It is his answer to the province's demand for a "world leading marine spill response" plan, which is currently the biggest sticking point in gaining the British Columbia government's approval for new heavy-oil pipelines.


** In about 10 days, the second multibillion-dollar equity offering this year by TransCanada Corp is set to close.
