CBC British Columbia homepagerrors - July 2012

Welcome, one and all, to a blog post that showcases the errors I detected on the CBC British Columbia homepage during July 2012. Up first is the above image from the "live blog" section of the CBC BC website on July 4. Obviously the nonword waarning should have been warning, and less obviously, targetted is also a nonword - it should have been targeted. Then,

on July 6 nonword nieghbourhood should have been neighbourhood. Then,

on July 25 nonword dumspter should have been dumpster. Lots of nonwords last month. Then,

on July 31 fire fighters should have been firefighters (one word), and immediately should have been immediate. The errors are still present in the article's first paragraph. Then,

also on July 31, Tsawassen should have been Tsawwassen. Then,

I clicked to the article ("BC Ferries cancels some Tsawassen-Swartz Bay sailings" on CBC News online on July 31, 2012) where I saw that the headline was the same - it's since been changed entirely. That is all for this month (uhh, last month?) from the CBC BC homepage. Tune in next week! Click an image to enlarge it.
