NTV also manages to get to the Labrador West weather-related story within 24 hours. No flies on those guys.

Lynn Burry reported on Wednesday night:

The bad weather in central Canada is causing problems for motorists in Labrador West.


The shortage is due to the inability of gas trucks to get to areas of Labrador City from Baie-Comeau. Roads to the area have been closed by heavy snow in parts of Quebec.
For NTV's future reference, here is a map showing Labrador and the road (green) and railway (red) which connects western Labrador to Baie-Comeau and Sept-Iles respectively, and whose disruption had economic consequences in Labrador City and Wabush.

While, yes, those two towns are in Quebec, they are no more in "central Canada" than New Brunswick is.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for another example to add to your file of stupid news stories of 2010, here's my nomination, courtesy of CBC: "N.S. owns one-fifth of St. John’s apartments."
