    Husky Energy layoffs underway in downtown Calgary

    Dozens of Husky Energy workers streamed out of the company’s downtown Calgary location Tuesday morning carrying envelopes and paperwork signalling they’ve been laid off.

    Several workers, who did not want to be identified, confirmed the company had informed some of its workers it was making staffing reductions. Some contract workers were informed of the changes Monday evening, they said.

    Some people who were let go were escorted into cabs waiting outside of the company’s headquarters on Eighth Avenue S.W.

    In a statement, Husky Energy confirmed the layoffs but said the company "will not be sharing the number of jobs affected."

    "Husky has been taking steps to better align the organization and workforce with our capital plan and strategy," read the statement.

    "These changes put Husky in the best position to achieve its goals. This was about changing the way we approach our business, the way we make decisions and the way we work together to meet our goals."

    One worker leaving the building said she believed "hundreds" are affected.

    Husky Energy is set to report its third quarter earnings on Thursday.

    This is a developing story and will be updated throughout the day.

    I'm sure the board of directors will get nice big payoffs from the new federal government.

    Not sure about that but what would expect a western energy company to do after last night. The direction of the country (eastern) is clear. It's not like this company is from Quebec.

    All of this just feeds the separationist sentiments. Turd needs to realize this is a serious problem and could easily end in the breakup of the country. AB isn't interested in handout and welfare. We want jobs and a robust economy. We are also not interested in blackmail lie his home province. If separation reaches a head, we will go.

    SNC and Bombardier need to buy out oil companies with Liberal bailout money. Or maybe the CBC can.

    Is this a sentence ? It makes no sense based on my understanding of the english language.

    I thought I saw something on Facebook that they brought in taxis for another 600 people today.


    Edit: Oops I think that was something left over from yesterday.
