Imperial Oil Ltd. (TSX:IMO). Oil and gas. Up 85 cents, or 2.45 per cent, to $35.54 on 1.05 million shares. Shareholders of the oil and gas company are being asked to support motions to force it to be more transparent about its water-related risks from pollution and climate change, as well as its lobbying activities and expenditures. Imperial Oil has placed the motions on the agenda for its annual general meeting in Calgary on April 27, but is recommending shareholders vote against both because it says it already provides enough transparency.
