This isn't august writing. It's not angust writing either.

The problems in this article ("3 Vancouver fires not linked say investigators" on CBC News online on June 3, 2011) begin right at the top, in the top-of-the-article photo caption. The home is on Angus Drive, not Augus Drive. Then,

the writer correctly spells Angus Drive, but that street does not ever intersect Vancouver's Alexander Street. Angus Drive does, however, intersect Alexandra Street. Then,

it's back to another incorrect Augus Drive, before becoming

Angus Street. It's really simple CBC: Angus Drive. Not Augus Drive and not Angus Street. Ridiculous. Click an image to enlarge it.
