Editorial: Suncor can’t be this obtuse if it wants a future in Denver

The Denver Post: Suncor Energy’s refinery operations in Commerce City are of regional concern – for health and safety, for the supply of fuels and asphalt, for problematic greenhouse gas emissions, and for environmental protection.

Yet, the company that owns the plant refuses to be transparent about any of these concerns, instead forcing the public to sleuth and speculate about air pollution, gas shortages, Methane emissions, and contaminating spills.

We understand that Suncor, headquartered in Calgary, is a public company listed on the New York and Toronto stock exchanges and, in theory, only responsible to shareholders.

But the urban setting of Suncor’s facilities on Colorado’s Front Range demands that the company’s leaders not be obtuse to public concern.
