On Friday, the S&P 500 was up 0.4% and Toronto was up 0.1%.

TFI International was up 2.2%.

CRH Medical bounced up 12.5% on Toronto and 10.6% in U.S. trading.

Alimentation Couche-Tard was down 1.2% to $56.90. I would be inclined to use this dip to add modestly to positions.

The terrorism attack in Edmonton last night hits somewhat close to home for all Canadians and quite close to home for those of us living in or near Edmonton and anyone who is familiar with the two locations of the attack. These types of attacks are unfortunately a part of life. I think the proper response includes a lack of panic and continuing to go about life as usual.
