see, now if i was a criminal mastermind... this is the type of heist i would set my minions on.

in all seriousness though, this is a fairly significant percentage of the global supply of maple syrup. what are these people's motives? with global warming threatening sugarbush throughout the northland... is there a black market for grade a amber? is someone stockpiling that sweet, sweet maple sugar as a sort of apocalypse currency, along with liquor, cigarettes, ak-47 ammo, and toilet paper? maybe just looking to support their own heavy waffle habit? and will the nefarious canadian crooks trip up while unloading their sweet stash, maybe get nabbed by the mounties, eh?
