————-
We recently completed our first-ever sale of Cenovus-produced crude oil to Irving Oil. We took advantage of capacity we have on the Trans Mountain Pipeline to ship oil from Alberta to Burnaby, B.C., where it was loaded on to the Irving Oil-chartered tanker, Cabo de Hornos. The ship is now on its way to Irving Oil’s refinery in Saint John, N.B., a voyage of 11,900 kilometres via the Panama Canal. This means more Canadian oil being refined in Canada, creating economic value and improved energy security. We believe this Canadian success story demonstrates the ability of the two companies to help drive Canada’s economy with innovative solutions, even during these unprecedented times of turbulence created by the COVID-19 pandemic. #Cenovus #oilsands #CanadianEnergy

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, top health officials, to give COVID-19 update

Published on

Premier Jason Kenney and top health officials are to provide an update on COVID-19 this afternoon as Alberta faces surging hospitalizations.

Chief medical officer of health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta Health Services CEO Dr. Verna Yiu, and Health Minister Jason Copping are expected to join Kenney.

A surging number of COVID-19 infections, driven by the Omicron variant, is putting increasing strain on the province’s already overwhelmed health-care system.

There were more than 1,100 people hospitalized for the virus in Alberta Wednesday, with expectations that admissions will soon exceed record highs seen during the previous wave.

Dr. Shazma Mithani, an emergency room physician in Edmonton, says wait times are longer than she has seen in at least five years.

Mithani says she is worried, as this wave continues to surge, that people needing treatment for COVID-19 and other medical emergencies could have worse outcomes because of stretched wait times.
