THE GLOBE AND MAIL

** Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd is selling C$200 million ($155.96 million) in shares even as the company dials back spending and warns of additional delays to its marquee Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. (tgam.ca/2ACCf9d)

** Plains Midstream Canada said it is reopening its train-loading facility in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan, which closed in 2016 after oil prices had plunged to less than $50 a barrel from more than $100 and Canadian crude was shunned by U.S. refiners in favor of cheaper supplies from overseas.
