An Oil Company Was Angry Police Would Not Stop Picketing Workers. The CEO Claims Scott Moe’s People Offered to Help.

Saskatchewan’s government quietly assured an oil company that it would intervene if the company lost “confidence” in police responding to a labour dispute involving 750 picketing workers, according to a letter signed by the oil company’s CEO.

The letter, released through Freedom of Information and obtained exclusively by PressProgress, shows Co-op Refinery CEO Scott Banda wrote to Saskatchewan Correction and Policing Minister Christine Tell earlier this year.
