dear LA Times: the leader of Canada is the prime minister

I get the L.A. Times headline e-mails.

Today, they made a small gaffe:


    Another Blow for Canada’s Premier

    TORONTO-Prime Minister Paul Martin faces a shaky future after a Canadian Parliament vote Tuesday in which two opposition parties teamed up to win passage of a recommendation that Martin’s ruling Liberal Party resign. By Andrew van Velzen and Maggie Farley.

AAAAARRRRRRRGGH!
Please, L.A. Times – do your damn homework. The leader of the country north of you is the Prime Minister, not the Premier. Premier’s are provincial leaders. Like governors. Or, as we call them here, “governators.”

Sigh.
