40 hectares is not a particularly large forest fire in Canada.

The 2019 Alberta wildfires were 803,393 hectares.

It's just not going to feel real until it's described in the number of Olympic-sized swimming pools

//future archaeologists are going to really hate english

Space archaeologists will measure it in Kessel Runs.

I'm  amazed that poutine comes in vats!

That's about 5.6 oxgangs or 160 jugerum.  Let me know when it gets to be over 50 Marabba.

I'm pretty sure the fire has to be described in French first, then English in a smaller font underneath.

While true, apparently the fire hazard there is extreme at the moment, no fires allowed due to a dry spring, meaning it's ripe to head there and let's hope this is as big as it gets, even if you would like to see Canadian Frenchie's on fire.

We as Canadians need a province to whine about every day out side Alberta.  And that my friends is the land of the poutine.

We'll always have Toronto.  I could be persuaded that our mutual contempt for that one city is what is really holding confederation together.  (former Trawna resident myself)

The water bombers were turned back. Quebec officials cited the lack of proper French language on the plane's markings.

Had real poutine once.  We were in Vancouver, BC for a conference and there was a top-rated fish shop that served it only 12 blocks away.  Turns out the blocks were about a kilometer long.  Still worth it.

We took the bus back.

The girl that doesn't like curds doesn't.

The fries are simply a transport mechanism for the gravy and curds.   Honestly hold the fries and just give me a pile of curdds covered in hot gravy and I'm good.

Who started the fire? Probably degens from upcountry.

Anyone currently try to learn English probably hates it too. You need to know the spelling rules for other launguges to have a chance of getting it in English. Apparently other languages just sound like they are written and the characters mostly have the same sounds associated with them all the time.

However, I would argue that the one without gravy (the taco one) is NOT a poutine.   It is just spicy cheese fries.

No Gravy = Not a poutine.

It's also not an area that is typically susceptible to fire, being that close the St. Lawrence.

Now go to Eastern Ontario or Quebec and get good poutine, rather than the alright stuff you can get out here.

So close, but you didn't put French first, so you're no longer allowed in Quebec.
