Two major fuel suppliers are sounding the alarm for Ontario's trucking industry amid "critical" shortages of diesel fuel in the province, the Canadian Press reported.
The fuel shortage, which has seen motorists inconvenienced for more than a week as gas pumps intermittently run dry, has forced Ultramar to suspend diesel deliveries to four Toronto-area service centers and three other Ontario cities - Hamilton, Cambridge and London, according to the CP.
Ontario truckers cannot expect relief from Ottawa to allow so-called “off-road‘‘ diesel to be used during a fuel shortage in the province, Federal Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn said Friday.
“If we can do anything we can to move diesel from one part of the country to Ontario to alleviate this problem, that‘s something we‘re doing,‘‘ Lunn said.
