Is Canada really worried about a Chinese invasion?

In the time required to ship poutine from China to North America, it would...uhh...congeal into something more like a building material than a food.

So it's dual purpose?
China could corner 2 markets with one product.

The more Chinese food the better.

McDonald's version of poutine is bad. I wonder about a Chinese version of it...

Indeed!

It sounds like the guy was trying to give the Chinese the Canadian's patrol schedule. Why the Chinese would care what that schedule was, I don't know. Maybe they were trying to sneak drugs into Canada, or something.

Too late now, they already have Vancouver.

Maybe China needs a robotic space arm.

I recall a friend from "'Tranna" once seeing a sign for a restaurant that catered to "Chinese/Canadian Cuisine. Even as a Canadian he wondered what "Chinese/Canadian Cuisine" could be, and I simply replied "Chop Su, eh?".

The majority of China's espionage from the 90's onward has been focused on industrial espionage, stealing engineering secrets from more advanced countries so China can either build more advanced weapon systems, or pass those secrets to Chinese state-owned companies to produce and sell knockoffs. This whole story is classic Chinese spycraft.

Poutine? I thought it was a recipe for chicken soup!?

FTA:

A Toronto man is under arrest on suspicion of passing classified information about Canadian shipbuilding practices to China


I would have guessed that China was already about 4000 years ahead of Canada in terms of ship building experience.

He's going to the Big House for 20 years for trying to sell Canadian Navy secrets?

4.3% of Canada's population (closing in on 1.5 million) is Chinese.  That number is going to increase in the future, so eventually China will have a second homeland in all but name.

Laugh all you want. But this is actually designed for the intervention of Hudson's Bay drug smugglers using canoes. It's big business smuggling Aspirin and Buckleys Cough Mixture into Quebec from Moose Factory.

McPoutine?

That almost sounds like it should be from an old Bloom County strip...

JackalRabbit: i wonder about the Chinese McDonald's version of it


I feel like you should be punished for even wondering about that.

Blue Monk restaurant, Buffalo, oh hells yeah. Even though they changed the recipe, still really good poutine. I'm not buying that New Hampshire pronunciation I heard when I was up there, though.

sumitjadhav1337: What kind of poutine?


The Canadian, from La Poutine, of course. Topped with bacon.

What would Toronto know about Poutine? If it was someone from Gatineau or Montreal I would give you. That is like someone from Minneapolis giving away the secrets of Texas BBQ.

Not even close. The Canadian government is in the process of replacing our existing frigates and navy coastal patrol vessels as well as replacing a few more ships for various government agencies we actually do have a fairly decent ship building industry so it isn't like we don't have information worth stealing and this guy was sending ship design info back home. In about three years China will probably be trying to sell us inferior copies of our own destroyers for cheap...and we'll probably buy them and spend millions more fixing them up which is how we run our navy now.

The hell? I know 'Mericans aren't so hot with their geography, but Hamilton and Toronto are not the same town.

It's like a crime taking place in Philadelphia and the news saying it was Atlantic City.

Watch out for knock-off Tim Horton's donuts with the extra dash of melamine.

Toronto don't know shiat about poutine, bagels either.

No, no, and Hell no !
Toronto has absolutely nothing to do with poutine.
This is just another ploy to eradicate Québec's contributions from the history of North America.

First they rewrite the history of Croc clogs, now they want to associate poutine with Toronto.

Ummm, he was arrested in Burlington, which is 60 km from Toronto. Did he live in Toronto? Then he isn't a Toronto man, derpy!
