In this story the writer states: 1) "Brittish Columbia." The correct spelling of the province is BRITISH COLUMBIA 2) "nabostaten Alberta." Neighbouring State? Alberta is a province in Canada, not a state. Canada has been using the French system of Provinces for 345 years since 1663, when Canada became a Royal Province France. British Columbia was a British colony until they negotiated with the Canadians entry into Canada as Canada's 6th province in 1871. Canada does not have states, and has never had states. Mexico and USA are the only two countries in North America with states, Canada does not. The Norwegian word for province is "provins". 3) "Brittish Columbias" The correct spelling of the province is BRITISH COLUMBIA 4) "Staten har allerede satt av 100 millioner canadiske dollar til etterbruken av anleggene i Whistler-området." This is wrong. It should read: "Provinsen har allerede satt...."
