Competition Bureau preserves competition in supply of retail gasoline in Kemptville, Ontario

News release

November 26, 2021 – GATINEAU, QC – Competition Bureau

The Competition Bureau has approved Centex Petroleum as the purchaser of the Quickie gas station in Kemptville, Ontario. The Bureau, MacEwen Petroleum Inc. and Grant Castle Corp had entered into a agreement that required MacEwen to sell the retail gas station that was owned and operated by Quickie Convenience Stores Corp. in Kemptville, Ontario as part of their acquisition of 51 Quickie convenience stores.

In October 2021, the Bureau concluded that the proposed transaction would likely substantially lessen competition in the supply of gasoline to retail customers in Kemptville. Selling the gas station in Kemptville eliminates any increase in concentration resulting from the proposed transaction.

The Bureau has issued a position statement describing its analysis of the proposed transaction as well as a summary of its findings.
