Canada's Gas Station Motivated for Makeover

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(CCNMatthews - April 22) - Petro-Canada Retailers challenge other Toronto businesses to help make Toronto a cleaner place by participating in Mayor David Miller's "20-Minute Toronto Makeover" on Friday April 22, 2005 at 2:00pm.

"I'm impressed with the enthusiasm and organization commitment Petro- Canada is showing in all aspects of their neighborhood clean-up plans," said Bruce McKelvey, Chair of the Board of Trade's Clean City initiative. "They clearly understand both the solid business rationale for this effort and the positive community impact it will have. I welcome them challenging other companies to launch similar efforts."

Retailers at over 200 Petro-Canada retail locations across the Greater Toronto Area will join other Torontonians taking part in the spring clean-up blitz at home, work and school.

"We're located on some of the most visible, high-traffic property in Toronto and across the GTA," said Petro-Canada's General Manager of Retail, Ontario Phil Churton. "By extending our annual spring clean-up to the area surrounding our sites, we can make an immediate and noticeable contribution to the Mayor's clean-up efforts."

Earlier this month, Petro-Canada retailers from across the GTA pledged their support for the clean-up effort during a special kick-off meeting attended by Toronto Councillor Jane Pitfield who champions this initiative on behalf of the City.

Petro-Canada is one of Canada's largest oil and gas companies, operating in both the upstream and downstream sectors of the industry. Its common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol PCA and on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol PCZ.
