independent fuel distributor and marketer, today announced that a
dividend of $0.085 per share will be paid on January 15, 2013 to
shareholders of record on December 21, 2012. The dividend will be an
'eligible dividend' for Canadian income tax purposes. The ex-dividend
date is December 19, 2012.
Shareholders who wish to enroll for the first time in the Premium
Dividend™ or enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan must do so prior to
the December 19, 2012 ex-dividend date if they wish to participate in
the Plan for this month's dividend.

Premium Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan
In addition to the option of receiving a monthly cash dividend of $0.085
per share, the Premium Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment
Plan provide Canadian shareholders with the following options:
The Premium Dividend™ - this provides eligible shareholders with a 2%
cash premium in addition to their regular cash dividend. Participants
in this option will receive $0.0867 per share on the dividend payment
Dividend Reinvestment - this allows shareholders to repurchase shares
with their dividend at a 5% discount to the volume weighted average
price as defined by the Plan.
Those shareholders who do not elect to participate in the Premium
Dividend™ and enhanced Dividend Reinvestment Plan will still receive
their regular monthly dividend of $0.085 per share.

participate in either component of the Plan should call their broker
