Could Be A Sticky Situation

Canada Seizes >600 Barrels Of Stolen Maple Syrup

that level of theft impacts their strategic reserve


Yes, Canada has a strategic reserve of maple syrup.  rolleyes


Police in Canada have seized more than 600 barrels of maple syrup in New Brunswick as part of an investigation into millions worth of stolen maple syrup in Quebec.

The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers reported large quantities of syrup missing last month during a routine inventory, finding empty barrels at a site of the province’s global strategic reserve at St-Louis-de-Blandford.

Quebec provincial police Sgt. Christine Coulombe said Wednesday police executed a search warrant in Kedjwick, New Brunswick last week, but could not provide more information as the investigation was ongoing.

But the owner of Kedjick-based exporter S.K. Export Inc. says police visited last week and told him it was related to the missing syrup. Etienne St-Pierre says his usual suppliers, small producers based in Quebec, sold him it.

The shipment of the pancake-topper was making its way back to Quebec in a heavily guarded convoy of 16 trailer-loads on Wednesday.

“(The convoy’s) under police protection going somewhere in Quebec,” said Yvon Poitras, the general manager of the New Brunswick Maple Syrup Association.

It seems Canada does NOT use the standard UK barrel of 43 US gallons and a quart, they use a 60.60 US gallon barrel, at least for maple syrup, so we’re looking at more than 36,400 gallons of product. At about $35.50 per gallon, that’s a theft of nearly $1.3 million US.

And this theft is peanuts compared to the syrup theft back in August of 15,000 barrels.  Ah, now I get it. This 601 barrels worth was part of that August theft. So the thieves really are trying to shop their swag inside Canada. My guess was they’d at least be smart enough and sophisticated enough to get the 60 tanker trucks full of product out of the country. Go sell it to the Russians or the Chinese or somebody. Nope. They’re trying to sell it a bucket at a time, probably to tourists. Stupid hosers.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
