Heads should roll due to these subheadlines

These three subheadlines, all from CBC News, were seen within a week of each other. First up, from "Lions Bay mayor wants more barriers on Sea to Sky highway" on CBC News online on November 24, 2013, there is this brutal misspelling of what should be kilometres. The article has been updated at least once and the error is still there. Then,
this is from "B.C. entrepreneur invents energy-saving sensor" on CBC News online on November 26, 2013, and that's not electricity. Finally,

the subheadline for "Manhunt launched on North Shore after man shot and killed" on CBC News online on November 30, 2013, included a T-less traffic. Three errors resulting in three nonwords on display in subheadlines. Where's your head at, CBC? Click an image to enlarge it.
