Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY). Up 42 cents to $132.87. The Royal Bank of Canada has been caught up in Texas efforts to limit bank actions against gunmakers and fossil fuel companies as attention intensifies on divisive issues. Texas passed laws last year barring state contracts, including in its major municipal bond market, from going to banks and other financial institutions that boycott energy companies or “discriminate” against a firearms entity. fire or a trade association. RBC says it is in compliance with state laws, even as Texas officials review bank policy. Meanwhile, the bank is facing questions from environmentalists asking how the bank can comply with both the laws and its climate change commitments. The state defines a boycott broadly. In Senate Bill 13, it includes any action by banks to limit business dealings with an oil and gas company because it does not go beyond minimum environmental requirements. Language used in firearms law includes denying a business relationship solely because it is a firearms entity or business association.

Food Couche-Tard Inc. (TSX: ATD). Up to 57 cents at $58. Convenience store retailer Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. announces that it will deploy more than 10,000 contactless self-service cash registers within three years in more than 7,000 Couche-Tard and Circle K stores. The system, called smart checkouts by the company, is powered by an artificial intelligence designed by the firm Mashgin. It has been tested since 2020 in nearly 500 Circle K stores in the United States and Sweden, as well as in Couche-Tard’s retail innovation lab located on the McGill University campus in Montreal. The system uses computer vision to recognize items presented from virtually any angle and registers them instantly in a single transaction without the need to scan barcodes. Customers will deposit their items at the checkout, which uses cameras to record everything in less than a second, and pay as usual. Magnus Tägtström, vice president at Couche-Tard, says the smart payment system will reduce queues and free up teams to focus on helping customers.

Canadian National Railway Company (TSX:CNR). Up $4.33 or 3% to $148.67. The new general manager of the Canadian National Railway Company has not apologized on behalf of her company for the absence of Francophones on its board of directors. Tracy Robinson told a parliamentary committee on Wednesday that she was committed to appointing a French-speaking administrator from Quebec very soon. Speaking in part in French, a language she’s been learning since joining the railroad three months ago, Robinson told the Standing Committee on Official Languages ​​that the Montreal railroad has identified a large number of qualified candidates. She said CN “leads by example,” noting that two-thirds of senior managers and 90% of senior managers working in Quebec speak French. Canada’s biggest railway was thrown into a language storm when the Montreal-based company failed to replace Quebec Premier Jean Charest, who resigned to run for Conservative Party leadership federal, by another francophone.
