If the Canadian National does not know what to do with its profits announced Tuesday, Mayor Regis Labeaume suggests that the railway company think of its Quebec bridge which it refuses to repaint.
“If we can help them invest this extra profits, I have good ideas,” said the mayor of Quebec City. On Tuesday, CN reported earnings of $ 1.02 billion for its fourth quarter for total revenues of $ 3.22 billion. The carrier has thus increased its dividend by 10%. “I am very happy for the shareholders and if they were to increase their contribution to the painting of the Quebec bridge, it would be magnificent. “The company has the means,” said Mr. Labeaume. They lack a bit of social conscience. ”
