The Fort McMurgray, Alta.
sale of Crystal, the first ever online ice cream shop, to a Canadian outlet is slated for Friday.
The news comes as Canadian Tire has been forced to cancel the sale of the popular ice cream bar to a local outlet because of security concerns.
The sale of a $40 ice cream sandwich to a Calgary-area company is the latest in a string of Canadian retail closures and expulsions that have shaken the nation’s largest city and province.
More than 500,000 Canadians have been told they will lose their jobs as a result of the latest round of retail closures announced Tuesday by the Canadian Tire Corporation.
That total includes more than 600,000 workers.
The corporation said the closures are part of a wider effort to focus on safety and the long-term health of employees and their families.
“Our goal is to reduce workplace injuries, improve worker wellness and ensure the safety of our communities, our employees and our customers,” said CTV’s chief commercial officer, Peter Regan.
“We have made progress over the last few years, but we must continue to build on that progress.
We are committed to doing this for as long as it takes.”
The company has also announced it will close its corporate headquarters in Toronto for a “significant” amount of time.
The decision to cancel a sale of $40 of Crystal ice cream was announced Tuesday morning by a company spokesperson.
“This decision is necessary because the safety and security of our employees is our number one priority, and our immediate focus is ensuring that our employees are safe,” said spokesperson Chris Mowat.
“The sale is contingent upon security measures being in place, and we are working closely with the security firm to resolve the matter.”
A spokesman for the Fort McMurdo city of 2.3 million confirmed that it will also close its downtown office, where the sale was planned to take place.
“It’s a very challenging time for the city, but they’re taking care of it,” city councillor Greg McAllister told CBC News.
“Fort McMurkey is a great community, but there’s a lot of things going on around the world right now that impact the city.
The Fort McMourray City Council announced Tuesday that it had suspended a decision on the sale.””

Brian Phelan said.
“There are a lot more jobs than I think people know.
That’s the biggest issue we have to deal with, because there’s so many people who are unemployed.”
When it comes to our downtown office and we have this big community, and there’s this many people that are unemployed, it’s hard to find people who want to work.
“Fort McMurda’s mayor, Steve Thomson, has also made clear that he intends to close the city’s downtown office.”
What we are going to do is close the downtown office,” Thomson told reporters.”
If we can do it at a lower cost, that’s great.
But we’re not going to shut it down.
“Fort McComb City Council also announced that it was suspending the sale because it was too costly to do so.”
“If we’re going to have to do it, I think it’s a tough decision.””
