Oh, Canada. Earth's real-life snow globe is not only home to the buck-toothed water-rodents known as beavers. It's also home to all things maple, bacon, and of course, maple bacon. Most people associate the great white north with toothless hockey grins, aggressive moose, and Tim Horton's double-doubles, but there is so much more missing from the public narrative.
Poutine, not to be confused with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, is a gravy-soaked staple in the Canuck diet. Traditionally composed of gravy, cheese curds, and crisp French fries, poutine is a national treasure, like Ryan Gosling and Shania Twain. That being said, the story I'm about to tell you has many Canadians flying their national flag at half mast in mourning, and I'm sure you'll understand why.
