Jo is over 200 years old and still he doesn't look a day older than 60
JO MAPLE was born on the first day of Spring in 1780, his parents Marguerite (Maggie) Dubois and Pierre de La Rivière, nicknamed mahingan the wolf in algonquin, were busy gathering maple sap to secure their annual stash of sucre du pays (maple sugar). The story says that his mother,who was very…very pregnant, felt that the time had come, so leaning against an old maple tree she gave birth to a big fat baby boy whom she washed with maple sap…wow what a welcome. His destiny was sealed and on top of that Maggie eventually weaned him on maple sap. Now you understand why Jo claims that maple sap is the secret of his joy and longevity.
