The company says the retail and fuel locations will be packaged with long-term Parkland fuel supply agreements.

Francis Lapointe, Parkland’s vice-president of Canadian retail operations, says the decision to sell the assets is part of the company’s ongoing network planning and optimization process.

The sale comes as the company faces calls from New York-based activist investor Engine Capital LP for a complete board overhaul at the company.
