In this artcile the journalist writes about the province of Alberta in Canada celebrating its 100th anniversary as a "state". But, Alberta is not a state. She writes: "Dessuten feirer den canadiske provinsen Alberta hundreårsjubileum canadiske staten." Alberta is a Province in Canada. Alberta was created as a province from the Northwest Territories in Canada by the Prime Minister of Canada and Canadian Parliament in 1905. It has never been a state. The geographic and political divisions internally in Canada are called provinces and have been called provinces in Canada since 1663 when Canada became a Royal Province of France. In Canada we have used the French term and system of provinces since then. Canada, like France, China, Italy, Afghanistan, and many other countries in the world has provinces. There have never been states in Canada and this of course is an American term. But since Canada is not in the USA why would the journalist would use American political terms to describe a province in Canada? What is strange in the Norwegian media is journalists never referring to the provinces in China, France, Afghanistan (and other countries with provinces) as states. This reporting habit seems to happen often with Canada for some reason. For some very strange reason some journalists must think we have states in Canada? Is it guessing or assuming? An e-mail to correct the journalist she corrected the mistake.
