Sun apology

The Toronto Sun's embarrassing front page "eats" street map packaged in London, Ontario, prompted this brief correction in today's paper:

"OOPS!
We have egg on our face over yesterday's front page about new "street eats" in the city. Our graphic contained numerous errors, including misspelling Eglinton Ave. We apologize to our readers and cartographers everywhere."

Can we suggest out-of-towners working on future Toronto projects be sent Toronto street guides?

  1. How could someone at The Sun not notice those blunders or at least double check the spellings even if they aren't familiar with the city's streets.

    Hell, use Google map would be just as easy for both the creators of the PDF and the Sun folks.

    Sloppy and totally unacceptable.

  2. And, speaking as a former Free Press desker, it's typical of the slipshod dreck coming out of London these days.

  4. I, for one, am completely shocked that Toronto would try to blame others for their mistakes. Let's not forget that they never make mistakes, and would never -- oops!! -- forget to do something they said they would on St. Patrick's Day.
