This writing is not enlightening

The first error in this article ("Surrey eyes Central City for Canucks celebrations" on CBC News online on May 27, 2011) is victory when it should be victories. The second error

is the absence of the word to between works and expand. The third error

is my favourite error of the three: Lightening should be Lightning. Click an image to enlarge it.

In the first shot, I think you overlooked "the the team's" -- two errors in one sentence. I guess that's pretty good.

You're right, of course. After you pointed it out I recalled seeing it at the time, but overlooked it when posting. I guess that's what happens when I let too much time pass before posting. Thanks.
