Propane Shortage 

Governor Baldacci will be in Canada Wednesday, addressing the New Brunswick legislature.

While there, he also plans to meet with Irving Oil officials to find ways to ease our state’s propane shortage.

The now 12-day strike by Canadian rail workers has virtually halted all shipments of the natural gas to our state. Which means many Maine businesses are having a hard time finding enough of the fuel to make sure they can keep up with deliveries.

Spring Brook Fuel and Ice in Waterville is having to spread their supply around to make sure nobody is left out in the cold.

Meanwhile, the Canadian government is expected to try and legislate a back to work order today for the 28-hundred striking employees.
