This company was around for over 80 years. WTF happened. Well I don't have to look much father than the management we have at site. They are representative of the mindset of Husky overall, I knew working with them this company was in bad shape. I have been looking for an opportunity to move on for some time now and then this merger happened. Well here's to hope, maybe they get removed but my big fear is nothing will change.

Incompetent & Corrupt Management. Ignorant Executives.
Unjustified spendings + Valueless projects + Uncaring staff = The Husky Way
Lie to the Employees + Lie the customers + Lie the investors = The Husky Way
The fruit will be bourn by 1500 Alberta Families.
The problem is there are others still milking the cow for years to come, while Canada decided our "dirty" milk should not be sold but phased out. Thanks Justin! We will wait for your great reset.
The latest CEO sealed the deal for this takeover - terrible, obnoxious, pompous, arrogant. His non-existent leadership and ultime FAILURE drove the company to the ground after 80 years in business. Glad I escaped.
Ottawa policy and failure to support access to tidewater be it Northern Gateway, Keystone XL or Energy East have forced companies like HSE and CVE to merge in order to survive. You don’t see countries like the US, Norway or Russia “phasing out” oil or taking away support for oil & gas, in fact they are increasing spending and support. Any suggesting this is Alberta’s fault for not diversifying is clueless. Hydrocarbons will be needed for decades to come. Norway and Russia are positioning themselves for huge profits while Canada withers under the Trudeau new deal!
How does not having keystone impact things, even more layoffs? Or does is matter? Just get more train cars
Let’s cry those oil tears. It’s Alberta fault for depending on oil so much. We can’t blame Ottawa it’s our fault we wasted the heritage fund.
This isnt Ottawa's fault, it is Albertas. Greed and lack of foresight. Blame all you want, it's not going to change anything. Accountability from our government and diversification is the only way out now.
What new job would that be exactly? In the middle of the second wave of this pandemic exactly how many jobs do you see posted?
Listening to a SVP talking about empathy just before we get laid off is either hypocritical or ironic I’m just not sure which.
It's really easy to plummet into despair if you lose your job. You’ll experience anger, fear, anxiety, worry and resentment. This mindset is self-destructive. It will permeate all aspects of your life and erode your self-confidence. It’ll sap your drive and motivation. It's hard to do, but you need to stop the negative thoughts.
Even if you have a job, each day, you’ll worry whether or not you’re going to be the next one to get the axe. It may not be as bad as losing your job, but you’ll experience feelings of daily terror. Watching others get terminated is painful. You’ll develop survivor's guilt. There will be constant unrelenting dread awaiting that ominous call from human resources for a meeting. Start posting positive and see how the mindset changes go out and get your new job and dont look back
We wasted an opportunity. We milked the old cow (oil) until she would not milk anymore. We milked, milked and milked her some more. We wasted the heritage fund Peter Lougheed setup. Looks like our only hope is to cry “the west wants in”, “invest in oil”. Let’s face it we didn’t invest in green energy soon enough. Basically Alberta depends on oil for everything.
We will see further cuts to education and healthcare to fund the oil and gas industry. It maybe time for us to finally have a sales tax like every other province.
We lost an opportunity to pivot our economy before the oil crash. More people around the world are working from home, cars are going to be electric in many places.
Where is Jason Kenny and his ministers? Vacations in Hawaii ? The buck starts with Alberta first. What are the plans to pivot our economy?
Cenovus will fail soon enough they're gonna be bigger and more incompetent
Yes, big company, not will change.
This Li's way to liquidate the asset. All he has to do now is sell shares at the right time. Thanks Ottawa for the negative environment.
