Firstly, Home for a Rest Apologises for the recent lack of posts: we have all been very busy, and a concerted effort will be made in the new year to get back up to our old speed.

Secondly, the story in question: you really couldn’t make it up. Proving just how lucrative (and desirable) Québec’s sweet stuff really is, 18 people have been arrested on suspicion of stealing 2.7 million kilograms of maple syrup (worth $18 million CAD) from Saint Louis-de-Blandford in the Arthabaska region of Québec.

The full story can be found at the National Post:
