That Canadian Maple Syrup Heist Is a Serious Crime

ADAM MARTIN 4,689 ViewsAUG 31, 2012
If you can get past the novelty of the fact that Canada has strategic maple syrup reserve, and the "sticky fingers" jokes leading every single news story about it, the heist in which $30 million of maple syrup was stolen from a warehouse is actually pretty serious.

For one thing it was a major undertaking, requiring the transport of 10 million pounds of syrup, which the thieves actually removed from the barrels in which it was being stored. The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, which discovered the warehouse full of empty barrels last week in St-Louis-de-Blandford (they initially kept the crime quiet), didn't specify the volume, but at 11 pounds per gallon, that comes to 909,091 gallons, or 15,000 barrels, as the The Wall Street Journal's David George-Cosh worked out. That's a huge amount of liquid to transport and store illicitly.

For another thing, maple syrup is actually a pretty important part of the Canadian economy, and the loss of this much will have an effect. As George-Cosh explains:

While strategic reserves are typically linked to oil and other industry-sensitive commodities, Quebec has kept a vast store of maple syrup since 2000 to be used if supply of the quintessential Canadian staple falls with poor yields, or higher-than-expected demand.
"Prior to the theft, the federation had accumulated 37 million pounds of maple syrup in its reserves," Cosh reported, so the loss of 10 million is a significant loss.

According to the USDA, the price per gallon of maple syrup has climbed steadily over the last three years, coming in at $35.46 per gallon in 2011. Canada supplies about 75 percent of the world's maple syrup, and it's been working on expanding the market for this key commodity. The theft will hurt that effort, University of Guelph professor Sylvain Charlebois explained to The Globe and Mail's Kim Mackarael and Rita Trichur:

The federation has been working particularly hard to build a market for the product in Asia, where it’s less well known.“If they’re not concerned, they should be,” he said of the federation.“This is such a fragile industry, and any loss on the supply side could be devastating.”
It's not like the stolen syrup has a serial number, so if the thieves can figure out how to unload it, presumably it will be very hard to catch them.

What Jacqueau does not seem to understand is that people on welfare are much more likely to be obese and do not live as long as people who work for a living.
We should totally end the food stamp program that is keeping our poor people fat. If you are fat, you do not need food stamps. Only if you are under weight should you and you should go the the free food house and have to weigh in before they can give you taxpayer subsidized food.

Your reply is extremely irrelevant. What's new? Obesity, welfare, food stamps...you think we don't have all those things here? It's an even playing field, Rogue, except we have universal health care. Oh, btw, obesity is something you can consult your doctor about here. And it's free. Yes, you will say, we pay taxes, but it's much easier when the burden is shared amongst all working citizens.

Good story, and all true. Oh, Japan has "discovered" maple syrup, is a large importer. BTW, Vermont maple syrup, particularly the dark variety is VERY good. I can't help it, I love Vermont.

Did I say that? DID I SAY IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR AMERICA? NO!!! It is over taxation and over regulation that are driving jobs overseas, not the businesses. The businesses are doing what businesses should do which is follow the money.
But people like you think that "profit" is an evil word! But what happens when the 47% of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes become the 60% who do not?!? Don't blame businesses!!!

And not to mention Bloor street in Toronto and other western capital financial districts. London, Zurich, Paris, Franfkurt, Milano, Tokyo, Beijing, Singpaore, Sydney come to mind. I'm sure the big guys were deeply saddened when over 1000 women workers died in that factory collapse in Banagladesh, and a few days later, over 500 in a factory fire where exits were sealed (to keep non-unionised workers from escaping?). They were making clothes for North American, European and rich Asian countries. And oh, those rich guys, THEY DIDN'T KNOW about the workers' horrid conditions and low rates of pay, like the ones in China who committed suicide from work pressure and low wages. Child labour? How shocking blurt out the big cheezes when asked about that practice, we didn't know!! We trusted our Bangladeshi, our Chinese contacts to ensure decent working conditions, they stated, as they shed proper crocodile tears, blah blah blah. Let's enjoy our nice cheap clothes, our nice Macs and cellular phones, all made by people who can't afford to buy them for themselves. And let's reap in the profits, most of which stays offshore. Why should we pay taxes on profits made from cheap labour overseas?

Yes, damn unions, says Rogue. Yes, it's their fault for asking a decent wage, a 5-day week, 2 weeks' paid vacation, a hint of sick leave, workplace safety etc. And surely, the wage difference created by unions is what drives jobs abroad...suuuuuure, Rogue, suuuuuure, like reducing wages here (already being done by exporting jobs to the southern US) will put the US on a competitive level with Bangladesh and other slave labour countries that pay $1.00 an hour.

Rogue, stop defending the 1% for god's sake. Are you one of them? Why're you doing this, agitating against your own self? Even at a barely liveable wage of $15. and hour, how the hell can you compete with slave workers making $1. an hour in Asia and other developing countries? It's not taxes, it's not unions, it's the 1% greed taking advantage of poor workers in poor countries who have no choice but to work for peanuts. Look at your own navel, for heaven's sake. Become a spokesperson for the 99%, NOT the 1%.

Wall Street makes more money overseas.....

.... PERIOD.

It has nothing to do with 47% of poor people who cannot afford to pay taxes.

You continue to be an apologist for the wealthy few who own most of Washington DC.

They're All Against Jobs
by Senator Fritz Hollings / December 20, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ydr27ze

Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States. Everyone is crying for jobs, but no one seems to understand why there aren't any. And the reason for those opposing jobs is money.
Beginning in 1973, big banks made most of their profit outside of the United States. Industries off-shoring, investing, banks financing the investments, transfer fees, fees and interest on the loans made for bigger profits. Long since, the big banks under the leadership of David Rockefeller have led the way to off-shore and make a bigger profit. Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citicorp and Wall Street, conspiring for a bailout and now using it for bonuses, make more money from the off-shored operations.
