Finally looked this up - like chili fries, but with gravy instead of chili - somehow attributed to Quebec ... perhaps to deflect from the asbestos mining.

Subby, its a travel ban, not a ban on exporting goods.

That said, this good may well deserve an export ban:

Traditionally the gravy is made from the body fat of non-french speaking tourists, there's a reason no one you know has a story about how lovely the backwoods areas of Quebec are during the fall.  Not even that hipster who intentionally visits obscure places just to impress people, yummy foodie-hipster gravy.

You can have all the poutine and maple syrup you want. You have to order "to go" because you can't eat it in unless you are in the Canadian bubble.

Yeah, if you step out of your car on the way to Mirabel, you step into Mexico. Better than going all the way to Mirable, however, especially if your destination is Cancun or Tijuana.

It says this order applies to "any Country other than the United States". The US/Canada border restrictions had already been extended to Aug 21 (bumping it 30 days at a time since the initial closure).

Little known fact:
The dish was first termed "Poutine" on account of its predilection to cause frequent, fragrant bowel movements in those who consumed it.
The word is a combination of "poutporri", "routine" and "la poup".

Not many people know that.

I saw it for the first time on wikipedia this morning when I finally gave in to curiosity about this ongoing joke - I always assumed it was just another name for marmite - description looked like fries, cheese and gravy to me - if I ever find some and eat it, I will let the Quebecois know my review and specifically how it measures up to a top notch chili cheese fries

They've got to use real cheese curds though. If they don't then it's not proper poutine.

Apparently British Columbia citizens are patrolling the coastline in case some American boat people try to sneak ashore. Can't say I blame them.

Maybe they can turn one of the coastal islands into a quarantine camp or something. They've got to have some disused leper colony somewhere.

I'm more flexible on the gravy but there has got to be fresh squeaky cheese curds. Too many just toss shredded mozza on it instead and that's just wrong.

Correct.  Also, the cheese curds should never be refrigerated.  Chop them up into much smaller pieces so they melt better.  I make a mean poutine.

There are many good gravies.  This is a good one.

Mirabel is freight only airport now.  CSB: I was there (flying to Cuba), when Tom Hanks was filming part of the movie Terminal there.  The whole airport was done up to look like an American airport.  Truly weird.

It's gotta be the Classic menu item though, and tell them to keep the chives off it. The gravy has to be the kind of gravy you'd put on roast beef or turkey and not just some regular brown gravy. Everything else on that menu (while probably tasty) is some bogus hipster-style poutine.
