Refiners welcome study confirming superior Canadian fuel quality

OTTAWA, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - The Canadian Petroleum Products Institute (CPPI)1 welcomed the long awaited Environment Canada report on fuel quality that confirmed once again that attacks on the quality of Canadian gasoline and diesel fuel are unfounded.

"This is an important consumer confidence issue.  The report shows that Canadians can be certain that they have high quality transportation fuel choices that deliver superior environmental performance", said Peter Boag, President of CPPI.

The genesis for the study, conducted at the request of Environment Canada Minister Jim Prentice, was a questionable research report from the Pembina Institute commissioned by the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of Canada (AIAMC).  "We very much regret that the Pembina report created confusion among consumers and are satisfied that the federal government's due diligence has cleared the air", added Mr. Boag.
