Updated, but not fixed

This article ("Canucks game prompts liquor store closures again" on CBC News online on June 14, 2011) has been updated at least once, with the latest update coming over 19 hours after the article was posted, and yet a nonword - an obvious nonword! - remains in the article's subheadline. Absolutely ridiculous. There is no such word as saftey. Then,

safety gets the correct spelling - twice - in this paragraph, but there is one S too many in what should be six public liquor stores. That error also remains. Finally,
in the article's final line of text, Harbour Centre, located in Vancouver, Canada, is missing its U. The article may have been updated at least once, but the three errors posted here remain on display. Click an image to enlarge it.
