Maple syrup worth up to $30M stolen in Quebec

 

 

The warehouse, in St-Louis-de-Blandford, 160 kilometres northeast of Montreal, held about 3.4 million litres of bulk maple syrup and is part of a global strategic reserve of the sticky liquid.

I hadn't realized we had a global strategic reserve!?

 

 

"The St-Louis-de-Blandford warehouse had been secured by a fence and locks, and visited regularly," federation president Serge Beaulieu said in a news release.

That proves it was raccoons because Canadians know the RCMP always get their man. Only racoons can pick locks in Canada. :rolleyes:

Bit odd that the car is throwing a distinct shadow but Les Moose are not...

It does look like they are doing the "floating Trot", famous Canadian Moose gait.

@HEM: Would a video make you less cynical? The photo was taken in St John's. If you take a look at StreetView you'll see Chapters as featured in the video and if you turn to the right you'll see the Toys R Us from the photo.

That's a very long way from the 401 :)

Indeed it is. The photo wasn't taken on the 401.

Looks as if they've been bargain hunting.

The thing that interests me is when the next series of Murdoch Mysteries will be broadcast. It was supposed to start this September, but I think it'll be in 2012 now.

 

Brilliant series. Watched it all on youtube.
