Ontario and New Brunswick are in a bit of a sticky situation over some major bragging rights and it's just so Canadian. Maple syrup in Canada has led the two provinces to battle it out over claims of who's the second-biggest producer of the sweet stuff. Hopefully, this feud doesn't come to a boil!\nCanada is the world's largest producer of maple syrup with Quebec as the province that gets the top spot.\nIn TV ads, the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers' Association claims the second spot when it comes to making the sappy stuff.\nThe ad asks, "did you know Ontario is Canada's second-largest maple syrup producer?"\nAccording to the CBC, the ads are mostly airing in Ontario but they have been broadcast nationally on some channels.\nThis claim doesn't sit well with New Brunswick and has led to some sparring between the two provinces.\n"I don't know what Ontario had to gain from this. I do not see where it comes from," Louise Poitras, the executive director of the New Brunswick Maple Syrup Association, told the CBC.\nRay Bonenberg of the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers’ Association explained the ad to The Canadian Press and said it was produced when the 2018 figures were the most recent ones.\nAccording to Statistics Canada, the true north produced 9,796,000 gallons of the maple treat that year, with 465,000 coming from Ontario and 361,000 coming from New Brunswick.\nHowever, last year New Brunswick beat out Ontario by just under 100,000 gallons of the sweet, sticky stuff.\nThat's why New Brunswick isn't giving up.\n"We are number two and we aim to stay that way," said Poitras.\nOntario is a little more reluctant to participate in the maple syrup war though.\nBonenberg said that there was never any intent to deceive people with the ad and that there's no competition.\nThe emphasis is solely on marketing Canadian maple syrup, he said.\nView this post on Instagram So much going on over here the last few days .
