If you’re a logger, you are the epitome of urban cool right now. Forget about your sad sandwich in the woods. Instead, head to downtown Toronto where you can eat spruce-cured steelhead trout at Woodlot (if you can get a reservation) - a restaurant that ostentatiously piles firewood outside on the sidewalk, for use in its real wood oven. Or, try out Timber, a new spot on Vancouver’s Robson Street. Here, the ultra-Canadian imagery comes thick and fast: antlers on the wall, a taxidermied goose. Is it ironic? Is it authentic? Who cares!
