Bienvenue à Montraal, Qumbec!
A renowned British newspaper may want to have spellcheck handy as it failed to properly spell the names of a Canadian province and its most populous city.
The Guardian released a map showing where fugitives of a nation-wide manhunt might be and misspelled the name of both Montreal and Quebec.
- Manhunt continues as RCMP redirects search for BC murder suspects
- Cat filter accidentally put on during RCMP double murder press conference
- A Canadian man just bought the most expensive Nike sneakers in existence
The paper, founded in 1821, described the town of York Landing, Manitoba, and the remote town of Gillam, where the pair was last spotted, and used a map for scale.
While highlighting cities across the country, however, The
Grianduan Guardian fumbled two east coast spots, labelling Montreal and Quebec as ‘Montraal’ and ‘Qumbec.’
Sorry, Qum again?
The virtual world of Twitter has justifiably reacted to the miscue, which has seen been edited, in the best way it knows how by slamming the UK newspaper with jokes.
The Internet was quick to point out that the map also features a comical amount of water.
Also what the hell are those giant lakes in the middle?????

This map is a good reminder that you can white water raft from York Landing right on down to South Dakota.

I forgot that Montraal is a former Dutch colony.
