Companies in the news:
Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B). Up $1.10, or 1.8 per cent, to $61.68. A massive wireless outage that has left customers of Rogers Communications Inc. without phone or texting services since early Monday has broad economic ramifications across Canada, experts said. In addition to personal communications, experts said the outage is impacting business sales and services such as food delivery and curbside pickup, payments that require a wireless connection and the ability for people to work remotely. The service interruption could also have health implications, with some Rogers customers saying they’ve been unable to book or check-in for medical appointments. Rogers spokesman Andrew Garas said the national wireless carrier is working to fix the issue and apologized to customers. Residential and business wireline internet services — also referred to as wired or broadband internet — are not impacted, Garas said. According to Downdetector, a website that tracks outages, problems are being reported in most major Canadian cities but appeared to be concentrated in southern Ontario.
Nutrien Ltd. (TSX:NTR). Down $2.45, or 3.5 per cent, to $67.60. Nutrien Ltd. says chief executive Chuck Magro is stepping down and will be succeeded by Mayo Schmidt, the company’s chair.

He is a former chief executive of grain handling company Viterra Inc. and power utility Hydro One Ltd. Schmidt will be replaced as the chair of Nutrien’s board of directors by former TC Energy chief executive Russ Girling. Nutrien says with Magro’s resignation from its board, the board has decided to reduce the number of directors to 11 from 12.
