I have some more errors from the CBC British Columbia homepage to share with y'all. First, on September 15, 2011, the second of should not have been present. That text is also the first sentence in the article ("SPCA wants charge laid in Whistler sled dog slaughter" on CBC News online on September 15, 2011),
and, later in the article, where should be were. Both of those errors are still there today. Then,
on September 19, 2011, CBC can't figure out if it's BC Ferries or B.C. Ferries. It's the former, and the article's first sentence was also incorrect. Also in the article ("BC Ferries rescues guests from West Coast luxury resort" on CBC News online on September 19, 2011),
90 kilometres hours should read 90 kilometres per hour. Note the added word and the corrected-by-shortening hour. Later in the same article,
guest should most definitely be guests. Finally, returning to the CBC British Columbia homepage,
on September 20, 2011, there should have been a comma after B.C. and the second where should have been were (sound familiar?). This is also the first sentence in the article, and both errors are still there today. Click an image to enlarge it.
