Oh, Cananada

This happened locally (USA) and they just patched over the misspelled word. It's easy to tell at night but less so during the day until you get closer to it.

Name is on all the paperwork. Easier to change name than paperwork.

two Un*x utilities: cron and wall

Sounds like a Linux daemon that replies cron and is only hotly debated by people yelling over the sounds of server fans.

Cron, grant me this one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, the HELL with you!

I took a screenshot of the map CTV news used to show the location of the sign. Anyone familiar with the area would notice CTV labeled highway 401 as the 417, missing the location by about 20 miles.

Whenever there is a Cornwall thread I'm reminded of how criminally underrated the movie Outside Providence is.

It's a perfectly cronulent sign.

That comes as some surprise. My family exited Sweden.

Probably a Toronto writer, I have seen the Globe and Mail describe Cornwall, about 40 min west of Montreal, as "remote".

I've said it before, I'll say it again: The Canadian accent is just posting with typos.

Cronwall? I've been calling it Crandall. Why didn't someone tell me? Oh, I've been making a fool of myself.

This just in: typo in signage.  More at 11.

What about a corn wall?
2021-07-22 1:16:07 AM  
That's pretty devastating for Cornwall, as seeing that sign when driving between Ottawa and Montreal is basically the only awareness anyone will ever have of Cornwall's existence.

I deliver to a company there sometimes.
Once at the border crossing, when I was asked where I was heading, I said Corwall, Ontario.
The Agent said: "You mean Cornwell"?
I apologized, and told him that I must have misread it.
