Suncor has cut more jobs than initially planned. Just over a year ago, the oilsands giant said it would reduce its number of contract and full-time employees by one-thousand. But a total of 17-hundred positions ended up being cut. CEO Steve Williams says that number would have been higher if some of those workers had not been assigned to jobs elsewhere in the company. (Despite the sharp downturn in crude prices, Suncor is pressing ahead with the 15-billion-dollar Fort Hills oilsands mine north of Fort McMurray. It has already sunk a lot of money into the project, and it's expected to run for decades.)
