    That's a poorly researched article. Why didn't the reporter just do a quick search of the internet? They would have found the Vancouver CP society and been able to interview a few more sources, or at least check facts.

    Best collection in Canada, my ***.

    I didn't think it was too bad for the average reader...and it did say ONE of the best collections...not the best.
    Anyhow, perhaps the article was meant to stir interest rather than be completely scientifically correct. Perhaps you were a little harsh in your comments [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management. And the management will be happy to hear that!

    I think the article was mean to fill space. If they had meant to stir interest they would have directed people to more dependable sources of information.

    My criticism is not so much the inaccuracy, but the fact that the accuracies could have been corrected if they had just done a little bit more research.
