CBC British Columbia homepagerrors - April 2012

 Hello! I have in my possession some errors I detected on the CBC British Columbia homepage during April 2012. Want me to share them with you? Well, okay. There's no time like the present, so let's go. First up, from April 1, 2012, there is one be too many. It is also the first sentence of the article, which still features the extra word. Then,

 on April 12, there was another extra word. Only one from was needed. Then,

 also on April 12, there was a misspelling of Crown. Then,

 on April 23, there was yet another extra word. Then,

 on April 25, the first comma shouldn't be there, and centimeters should have the Canadian spelling of centimetres. (After all, CBC stands for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, non?) Then,

 when going to the article about Kimberley ("Kimberley, B.C. homes face flood threat" on CBC News online on April 25, 2012) there should be a comma after B.C. in the headline. The headline! Then,

 at the start of the opening sentence, the comma is now there, but it incorrectly took the place of the period! No! Wrong! Finally,

on April 28, there is one hyphen too many in what should be 240-year sentence. The headline of the article currently contains the same error. That's all I have to share with y'all! Click an image to enlarge it.
