Parks Canada Website - A Citizen's View (9)
I know of two glaring historical errors that appear in the Parks Canada website. They've been there for years with no prospect of getting them straightened out.
Here's an excellent role model, that Parks Canada would do well to emulate — The Toronto Star newspaper gives prominence to The Bureau of Accuracy (see screenshot below), with a clear invitation to tell them about a mistake: "If you have information about an error that calls for a published correction, please" send an e-mail, or phone or fax, or mail a letter. An archive of recent corrections is available.
Here's another excellent role model, that Parks Canada would do well to emulate — CBC News Report a Typo or Inaccuracy The only thing missing here is an archive of recent corrections, similar to that provided by the Toronto Star (above).
