The Quebec-based bank capped a strong second-quarter for Canada's banking sector by joining the country's Big 6 banks in beating analyst forecasts despite the challenges of intensified competition and ongoing low interest rates. The bank said it will raise its quarterly dividend for the second time in a year and eighth time in four years after posting $39.4 million in adjusted profits, up slightly from the prior year.

TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP). Oil and gas. Down 22 cents, or 0.44 per cent, to $50.25 on 3.4 million shares.

Pacific Trail will deliver gas the rest of the way to the coast, where the resource will be chilled into a liquid state and exported abroad via tanker.
