Faced with its first ever full-year operating loss, Imperial Oil announced a drive to be leaner and more productive. Spokesman Dennis Baxter said the intention was to give refineries like those in Sarnia, Ontario and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia a chance to prove their worth by upgrading economies and production. (Imperial's plan included trimming 17-hundred jobs, reducing production capacity, and keeping only those service stations and distribution centers that were profitable. A week earlier, Imperial announced a 36-million-dollar operating loss for 1991, its first full-year operating loss ever.)
