That's too much!

In three consecutive sentences/paragraphs (in "Think tank slams B.C. minimum wage hike" on CBC News online on April 29, 2011), an error is found in each one. In the first sentence, why did the writer get tripped up with the third it's after getting the first two right? In the second, why is the word from between government and confirmed. In the third, schedule should be scheduled. As a side note, does CBC think that its readers can't handle paragraphs that are longer than one sentence? Click the image to enlarge it.
