The beaver did it:

Internet Outage in Canada Blamed on Beavers Gnawing Through Fiber Cables

Rascally beavers took down internet service for about 900 customers in a remote Canadian community this weekend after gnawing through crucial fiber cables, the Candian Broadcasting Corporation reported Sunday. The outage, which has since been resolved, also affected 60 cable TV customers and disrupted local cell phone service, according to a statement from the area’s provider, Telus.

Oh, sure, they are blaming the beavers, who only want to welcome us to Canada.

    No,no. I’m resisting. I’m not gonna do it. I’m not gonna make a funny beaver joke here. You’ll just have to watch this, from Reach Around books.

      We got Tim Hortons in the States, why would we need to go to Canada?!

      Kidding – I love Canada, have some close relations there who I haven’t seen in a while and I really want to go for a visit asap. I always think of Canada as America’s cool cousin – smarter and better looking. The BEST way to see Niagra Falls is from the Canadian side. Now I want some Timbits!!!
