CBC British Columbia homepagerrors - December 2012

Happy New Year! There were a few errors I detected on the CBC British Columbia homepage during the final month of 2012. And would you look at that - here they are! First, on December 13 there was both a dollar sign ($) and the word dollars. That's redundant! Then,

on December 18 there was a nonword in the form of possiblity. How the fun do nonwords continue to show up on the homepages of major news websites? It's now 2013! Resolve to get with the times and spell check your work! To make matters worse,

possiblity is still present in the headline of the article ("Metro Vancouver police force a possiblity, official admits" on CBC News online on December 17, 2012). Then,

on December 22 there was another misspelling resulting in another nonword. Can you spot it? Then,

also on December 22, I personally believe that's should have been that. Then,

on December 31, 2012 ended with a bang with the word connecting. It should have been connection. Click an image to enlarge it.
