The culinary equivalent of hockey in Canada is maple syrup. We're passionate about it, grow up with it, make it in our own backyards, and we have built a profitable industry based around it. The province of Quebec alone produces nearly 80% of the worlds supply.
With maple syrup being such a delicious and well-marketed commodity, it's no wonder the province of Quebec threw off its gloves and put up a fight when it was discovered a substantial portion of it had gone missing - a whopping 6 million pounds of it. Officers from the RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement helped Quebec police in the investigation of the missing syrup. As details were released, the theft put a spotlight on the dark side of the maple syrup industry.
