You may want to look into what kind of plastic it is. Some plastics can leach toxins into the soil with excessive summer heat.
The tanks are made from BPA free High Density Polyethelyne resin.

Of course by far the greatest volume of 'Bring-back' is bootleg booze . . . . . . . . .
Alcohol not allowed there?

Well, it's like this. To get an order you have to go to the Drug and Alcohol Education Committee which approves all shipments in concert with the RCMP (The Mounties). Except the Committee found it a nuisance to touch base with the police and they actually just approve anyone who is a relative, friend or has a potential to share their liquid refreshments. The committee has seven members but two quit because they really wanted to do their job, the Chairman resigned as Chair and Deputy Mayor when he got caught stealing the former MLA's (Member of the Legislative Assembly) 20 foot sea container** that he thought had been filled with beer and the Vice-chair got caught boot-legging so there was no quorum and the Goverment disbanded the Committee. Without a Committee no one can legally import booze so it's smuggled in. Hasn't altered the number of 'Alcohol-related' hearings in my court but ....

** He hauled it away in the middle of the night with his Cat loader and tried to set fire to it when it didn't have anything in it.
I guess he forgot that A) The middle of the night in August is broad daylight, B) Metal doesn't burn all that well, C) Everyone in town knows his loader and there's only two in town anyway and D) He would have blown 0.25 on a breathaliser if the police had arrived in time.
And people wonder why I live up here. You chaps have to watch television to get this kind of fun and even then you're thinking "That could never happen in real life!"

John, it sounds like life up there is quite complex. Much more so than down here in the Flatlands . . . . .

Too much Chernobyl-irradiated lichen. Gives them the runs.

One of'em slipped and fell. caused a 10-reindeer pileup that took out the power mains to like half the country (seriously, though, that last bit isn't a joke. Half the freakin' country.)

Stereopticons? Used for viewing small images to make them large, is my guess. Had a plastic one as a kid: insert a disc with tiny transparencies and the view the at large size as you clicked from one image to the next. I know there was a brand name that became the generic term, but that was like 60 years ago!


Viewmaster - my grandfather got one and a lot of picture disks on his trip to US in 1954.

Stereoscopic viewers, if I am not mistaken ... seems quite collectible here. Not my thing.

I see them at many swaps ... Stereoscope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That one is very similar to one my great aunt had when I was young. Again, had pre-made 'souvenir' images.

Well, your half, not mine. So it's not really anything to get upset about

Oh, right, we use moose power down here. Much more reliable than reindeer.
