Red Deer, Alberta, December 19, 2005: Parkland Income Fund (TSX: PKI.UN) is pleased to
announce that a special distribution of ten cents ($0.10) per trust unit will be payable on January
13, 2006 to unitholders of record on December 30, 2005. The combination of this special
distribution and the regular distribution of seventeen cents ($0.17) per trust unit announced on
December 15, 2005 will result in unitholders receiving a total of twenty-seven cents ($0.27) per
trust unit on January 13, 2006.
The special distribution reflects the strength of the financial performance for the year ended
December 31, 2005 and is being paid after due consideration of the sustainability of the regular
monthly distributions. Any additional taxable income for 2005 will be retained by a corporate
entity owned by the Fund and used to provide a cash reserve which is prudent to mitigate
seasonal weakness of earnings that may occur in 2006.
Parkland Income Fund operates retail and wholesale fuels and convenience store businesses under its
marketing brands Fas Gas, RT Fuels, Esso and Short Stop Food Stores and transports fuel through its
Petrohaul division. Parkland has developed a strong market niche in western and northern Canada by
focusing on non-urban markets.
