Gazette error on 49th Parallel “inexcusable”

Please show a correction in next week’s Gazette.

The majority of our mutual boundary is the 49th parallel not the 48th parallel as printed in this week’s paper (A memo to our American Cousins:It’s the guns, The Picton Gazette, May 11, 2023).

That is an inexcusable error.

Editor’s note: The 49th parallel is synonymous with the Canadian-U.S. boundary from Lake of the Woods to the Strait of Georgia. The Gazette regrets the error.
