The next big Canadian crisis: The great poutine famine of 2013

Link

Quote:
Trouble abounds for poutine lovers and dairy enthusiasts after a fire in a small Ontario town decimated the region’s celebrated cheese factory.

The 118-year-old St. Albert Co-Operative was destroyed by a massive fire over the weekend. The Globe and Mail reports that $3.5-million worth of dairy products was also lost in the blaze, including a supply of the fromagerie’s prized cheese curds.

Consider it the most Canadian catastrophe since the great Maple Syrup Heist of 2012.

The century-old cheese factory is a key industry for the small community of St. Albert, Ont. It is one of the oldest francophone co-operative farms in the province and produces cheese curds coveted by restaurants across central Canada.
It's a sad day in Canada

It's already hard enough to get good poutine in Baltimore.

What is the proper Canadian pronounciation of poutine? I've always wondered that.

Not claiming to be Canadian, but I've always said poo-teen.

That's how it's said in most Canadian places outside of Quebec. However Jee is right, it's poo-tsin.
