Quebec Federation of Labour urging boycott of Shell stations on Friday

From The Canadian Press, June 07, 2010 – 6:21 p.m

MONTREAL – Quebec’s largest union group is urging consumers to boycott Shell Canada’s gas stations for 24 hours later this week to protest the company’s decision to close a Montreal refinery.

The Quebec Federation of Labour wants motorists to show solidarity on Friday with the 500 workers, all but 30 of whom will lose their jobs when Shell shutters the refinery and converts it into a distribution terminal.

The union says it’ll also be present at the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix this weekend, handing out pamphlets at the Formula One event. read more

TEHRAN, June 7 (UPI) — Energy giant Royal Dutch Shell moved back into the Iranian energy sector as new sanctions develop against the resource-rich country, a report says.

The International Oil Daily reported that Shell sent three shipments containing around 30,000 tons of gasoline each to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas in May.

Shell, Swiss oil trading giant Vitol, BP and Reliance of India announced in March that they would stop dealing with Iran, presumably from U.S. pressure over Iran’s controversial nuclear activity. read more

A drill ship uses a flare to burn gas and oil from a pipe connected to the broken Deepwater Horizon oilwell

America faces a problem, a dilemma so fundamental that not even the political skills of Barack Obama can disguise it, heightened by, but not originating in the BP affair: She either risks her environment by drilling for more domestically sourced oil, or she accepts the need to import more from a turbulent world – jeopardising her “energy security”. read more
