We all make mistakes. Most of us don’t make them in large type on the front page of a newspaper in front of tens of thousands of readers.Unfortunately, that’s what happened in the Saturday print edition of the Montreal Gazette.Our front page “tease” Saturday used a photograph and text to tell readers about a two-page feature about the SPCA inside the A section. However, the text referred to the YMCA rather than the SPCA.Many of you called or emailed to point out the large-type mistake and to express your dismay about the error.We’re dismayed too. The veteran editor who made the mistake is embarrassed. So are the two other veteran editors who proofread the page.I have responded to many of you to say we intend to redouble our efforts to keep such mistakes from happening in future. We will. But I am sorry to say there is no guarantee they won’t.I have been at this newspaper when we accidentally called the well-known archbishop of Montreal by the wrong last name — all the way through a lengthy article. When we called Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral “Mary, Queen of the Road.” When we said the composer of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons was actually the folksinger Valdy. When we misidentified the author War and Peace (it was Tolstoy, not Dostoyevsky, as a note in the New Yorker pointed out — ouch).There have been myriad other mistakes, equally chagrinning. All of them occurred despite a system of checks created to try to compensate for the volatile combination of tight deadlines and human creators.For the record, the Montreal Gazette truly regrets the error on Saturday’s front page. We will try our best not to do it again.P.S. The front page also omitted a photo credit for the historic photo of a calèche horse in the 1870s. The photo appeared courtesy of the McCord Museum. We regret that omission as well.Lucinda Chodan is editor-in-chief of the Montreal Gazette.
