REGINA -- Federated Co-op Limited has placed limitations on diesel and gasoline at its Card Lock locations.

In an email to CTV News, a representative from the company said there is a 300 litre limit on diesel per card, and a 100 litre limit on gasoline per card per day at Card Locks in Saskatchewan Alberta and Manitoba.

Co-op said the limitations are due to the illegal barricades outside the Regina Co-op Refinery.

The fuel restrictions are threatening rural emergency services. It was brought to the premier's attention at the annual SUMA Convention.

“This is one of the reasons we have come forward with our offer to both parties to bring in a special mediator,” Moe said.

Unifor members from around the country are in Regina, taking part in the job action which has been going on for almost nine weeks.
