Cheezies seem to invite conflagration. It would probably be wise to not smoke while enjoying Cheezies.History[SIZE=small][/SIZE]
The snack was invented after the Second World War by James Marker of Dayton, Ohio and W. T. Hawkins. The pair were living in Chicago when they discovered a method, by trial and error, of extruding cornmeal, casting it into fingerling shapes, then deep frying it in vegetable shortening and sprinkling it with cheddar cheese. Production was moved to Tweed, Ontario in 1949 where the recipe was perfected and the W. T. Hawkins Ltd. plant established.
Production was moved to a factory in Belleville, Ontario in 1956 after fire destroyed the original plant in Tweed. They concentrated exclusively on Cheezies after dropping other snack foods from their portfolio. The snack has been produced in the same facility ever since and continues to be sold across Canada. Marker's original machine is still used to manufacture Cheezies at the company's plant, as of 2012. Marker remained vice president of the W. T. Hawkins Company until his death in 2012.
On September 19 2016, a storage warehouse for W. T. Hawkins in Belleville also was destroyed by fire.
Maybe a little of that "Canuck lightning" at work, hey hey? There's a certain seedy little pizza joint in Eastern PA that burned down three times & now has seating for two hundred.Wait! There's more from Wikipedia!

It is at Page's Resort and Marina (the location with the gas dock, cottages, campground, and Page's Lil' Market). The liquor store is in the Market / Marina office.Where in Silva Bay is this liquor store? We spent a bunch of time walking around there over xmas but didn't see it.
Sneaky Weasel is about 6% ABV if memory serves so a better deal still!As much as people SAY they want expensive, boutique, craft beer.. the data does not support that.
8 months of operating the newest liquor store in the Gulf Islands (located in Silva Bay, come by and say "Hi" on your way back south), shows that the best selling beer by far is the cheapest (Sneaky Weasel). There is fancy craft beer available too, along with an assortment of hard stuff.
Silva Bay has been ruined by all the moorings. I was last there 2 or 3 years ago and it was almost impossible to anchor - we actually had to crowd the seaplane lane a little bit - not a problem but more than I liked.Never been in Silva Bay, may try that when I'm heading home.
I fully believe that most people don't want craft beer or anything unusual. Just look at the shelf space and TV advertising budget of the big corporate breweries.
Maybe you should try again.Silva Bay has been ruined by all the moorings. I was last there 2 or 3 years ago and it was almost impossible to anchor - we actually had to crowd the seaplane lane a little bit - not a problem but more than I liked.
From what we were told the overnight rate at the dock is about the same as a hotel room now.
We no longer go in there - we enter the islands through Porlier instead.
A real shame too - Silva used to be the first stop after crossing GS.
A craft beer is certainly no compensation for how they have fucked up Silva.
Is it any good? Wouldn't mind trying it, if it has US distribution. From the Balderdash site:Sneaky Weasel is about 6% ABV if memory serves so a better deal still!
Comes in a 15 pack, if your friends rate their good times by BAC.Pairs well with game day celebrations, fun in the sun and good times with friends.
$1.95 per foot per night at our marina.How much do they get for a mooring in Silva? Are there crisp fries to go with the craft beer?
