CBC British Columbia homepagerrors - January 2012

There were a few errors spotted on the CBC British Columbia homepage during January 2012. First up, from January 10, two very different spellings of the same highway. The headline version was correct. Then,

on January 19, there was a misspelling of between that resulted in a nonword. How embarrassing. Then,

after clicking to that article ("Winter storm warning issued for Metro Vancouver" on CBC News online on January 19, 2012), the first sentence had a couple of extra words in the first sentence. Then,

four sentences/paragraphs later in the article, the word to is missing from bewteen between expected and hit. Then,

on January 26 there was a subject/verb disagreement on the homepage - the boot (not the remains) is the subject, so have should be has. Finally,

also on January 26, there was an interesting - and utterly wrong - spelling of users. Click an image to enlarge it.
