Puls Music - 1 Story

1) Pagan's Mind til USA (Odd Inge Rand) 4 August 2009
In this entertainment story, the journalist writes: "Skiens progressive sønner Pagan's Mind skal være oppvarmere for finske Stratovarius i USA i september og oktober." There is nothing technically wrong with that, BUT, Canada is NOT IN the USA. Of the 19 dates below, there are 9 dates that in the country of Canada, not in the USA. Amazing that Canadian concert tour dates make up almost 50% of the tour, yet Canada is listed under the USA in the heading, Canada is not mentioned, and Canadian portion of the tour is not mentioned. It seems the USA tour is worth mentioning, but the Canadian portion of the tour, or even going to Canada is not worth mentioning. This is like a Canadian journalist writing about a Canadian band touring Sweden and Norway, but just mentioning the band going to Sweden, listing the Swedish and Norwegian dates, but never actually mentioning Norway. To be at least fair in this story, it should say:
"Pagan's Mind til Nord-Amerika" or "Pagan's Mind til Canada og USA" and"Skiens progressive sønner Pagan's Mind skal være oppvarmere for finske Stratovarius i Nord-Amerika i september og oktober."
Are Norwegians no better at seeing Canada as part of the USA, in the same way Norwegians complain how the world sees them as part of Sweden?
