Potash Corp. Drops After New Democrats Call for More Royalties

October 28, 2011

Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Inc., the world’s largest fertilizer producer, dropped after Canada’s New Democrats called for the company to pay more royalties.

The New Democrats made the demand during a debate, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported today. Dwain Lingenfelter, the party’s leader, argued for more royalties with Premier Brad Wall, leader of the Saskatchewan Party, which says the current system encourages investment, the CBC said.

Potash erased earlier gains and fell 1.4 percent to close at C$49.76 in Toronto.
