The parent company of Loblaws grocery stores and Shoppers Drug Mart said its profit amounted to $1.62 per diluted share for the quarter ended Dec. 31, down from $744 million or $2.20 per diluted share a year earlier.

First Quantum said it will begin a partial demobilization of its workforce of over 8,000 employees and contractors due to the stoppage.
