Petro-Canada Gas Outage
Suncor Energy says bone-dry Petro-Canada stations in Western Canada -- including Vernon -- should be re-supplied within the next few days.
Suncor's Edmonton refinery restarted last week following a shutdown for regular spring maintenance but that shutdown, coupled with a lack of gas from other suppliers -- left some of Suncor's Petro-Can stations dry.
Hardest hit areas included Edmonton and Calgary, but some Petro-Canada stations in B-C, Manitoba and Saskatchewan were also affected. Suncor is apologizing to customers and says the last time the company had such severe shortfall was two years ago, following the Fort McMurray wildfire.
