From the Ottawa Citizen:
The claim that geographic ignorance is exclusive to Americans has now been disproved.The lobby floor of the new CBC building on Queen Street features a map of Canada with several geographical errors laid out in beautiful granite.
Yet, while the map missed out on those bits of Canada, it did not fail to incorporate what appeared to be a new province: Alaska.
Last month, when the Ottawa International Airport's new terminal was opened, an alert traveller noticed that the artist-rendered map of North America -- located in the terminal's baggage area and second-floor level -- had put Atlanta in the middle of Alabama, Chicago in Wisconsin and Washington D.C. in Virginia.
