Trading of shares in Sears Canada (TSX:SCC) has been halted ahead of the Toronto Stock Exchange's open at 9:30 a.m.

The agency that regulates Canada's stock trading says the halt is pending news from the department store operator.

Halts are routinely issued when key developments could affect a company's share price.

Sears Canada's stock has already fallen dramatically amid questions about its future.

Last week, the company announced “significant doubt” about its ability to operate in its current form.

Sears Canada has said it could be sold or restructured but hasn't commented on a report it might seek court protection from creditors.

Shareholders rank after lenders and creditors in bankruptcy proceeding, so company shares could plunge if it does go the court route.

They say he also made a reference to people being killed overseas.

Authorities are investigating Wednesday's attack at Flint's Bishop airport as an act of terrorism.

They plan to hold Amor Ftouhi (fuh-TOO'-ee) of Montreal at least until a bail hearing next Wednesday.

The landlord tells The Canadian Press that Ftouhi lived there without problem for six years.
