  • Factory fire won't stop Ontario cheese curd maker
    St. Albert Co-Operative, an eastern Ontario cheese curd maker, said it will resume production after a weekend fire destroyed its sole plant. Rejean Ouimet, the firm's general manager, said other companies will produce the St. Albert curds, at least temporarily. Cheese curds are part of a popular Quebecois snack called poutine. At least one restaurant owner, having heard of the fire, called on his suppliers to snap up all the St. Albert curds they could buy so his late-night customer wouldn't have to go without.
