    It doesn't seem all that long ago that Husky screwed all their ops by bringing their own trucks online and I think the majority of them ended up at Gibsons. Now they're brining their own trucks back?Is this including Husky Pounder - Liquid Asphalt out of Lloyd?

    It has slowed down a bit in Northern Alberta. A lot of the transient workers were laid off and a lot of East Coasters moved back home. A lot of the locals tend to stay employed. A lot of the bonuses and perks have dried up and we had our OT cut. Still better than looking for a new job though I guess.
