Good, technical people, mostly with mining expertise, laid off last week. Investors should be very worried, this is no longer the progressive money making company it once was. Disasters and accidents will follow, and this company will struggle until senior leadership figures out how to deal with the cultural problems. Take your money elsewhere.

I got laid off from Imperial in September when my relatively new boss invited me to come meet him in person because "we had never met" (he was appointed after covid work from home) LOL.
Don't take it personally, it happens everywhere. You don't owe your company anything more than labour and they pay you a COMPENSATION (understanding the deep meaning of that term is key and this is not Japan). We have had 3 severe recessions in the last 12 years, this has been the norm.
Focus in your personal objectives, it is merely a short term relationship with your private employer, irrespective of where you are.
Leaders are in the biz of making money, employees are just the means to an end, a commodity so to speak.
Put yourself first and don't get carried away by the hogwash the leaders feed you. If you are financially looked after, focus on the next gig, suncor is in the past.
Seems like layoffs are happening quietly and sneakily - I and 30 other people (that I know of) were laid off during "goal setting" meetings with our leaders. It is an unfortunate way to treat employees - watch out for crashing morale!
