I found two errors associated with New Brunswick in the January/February 2014 issue of the LRC. As a native of that province, I found this upsetting.

In the review of the Pratts on page 6, Mount Allison University is located in Fredericton when it is in Sackville.

In the review of the book on pensions by Leech and McNish on page 30, it is stated that “Canada is not New Brunswick, not Rhode Island, not even the Netherlands, all of which are both culturally and politically homogeneous.” New Brunswick is the only officially bilingual province in Canada, with around one third of the population francophone and two thirds anglophone. This does not seem like cultural homogeneity to me.
