No damage to oilsands plants; production to resume in days ahead: Notley

She says production is expected to resume in the days and weeks ahead.

Notley says the province and the energy industry are working together to restart oilsands projects as quickly as possible.

Steve Williams, CEO of Suncor, says it's important for the Canadian economy to get production back on track.

He says there doesn't appear to be any damage to pipelines so far and he doesn't anticipate any layoffs generally because of the fire.

About a dozen oilsands projects have shut down because of the fire at an estimated loss of $65 million in daily revenue.
