You Probably Will Not Believe It

The Atlantic‘s website for mobile devices has run an article with the graphic above under this headline:

Why Does Canada Have a Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve?

Yes, difficult to believe. So click the image above to get the full story:

On Friday, news broke that thieves had stolen $30 million dollars worth of Quebec’s strategic maple syrup reserves. Much as the United States keeps a stock of extra oil buried in underground salt caverns to use in case of a geopolitical emergency, the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers has been managing warehouses full of surplus sweetener since 2000. The crooks seem to have made off with more than a quarter of the province’s backup supply. (I personally suspect these guys.)
