Newsbot made that mistake. The article only states 'heels'.
Here's all ya need to know from it:
"a report to be released Monday by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society points out that Canada has protected just 1.3 per cent of its 'ocean estate'."
"Canada’s performance has been dwarfed by the United States, which has set aside 30.4 per cent of its ocean estate for marine protected areas."
“We remain committed to meet our target of protecting 10 per cent of our oceans by 2020 under the International Convention on Biological Diversity,” said Ms. Shea. “As mentioned in the report, this goal is within reach.”
Not a very lofty target. :(

WOW, even the news bot is treading lightly towards starting political discussions.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

While so long as the intent is clear in most forum posts I don't think its too big of a deal. I notice it, but I don't say anything because I consider it more informal speech, and everyone makes mistakes.
I have been known on occasion to send corrections to authors of "news" articles though. To me that type of information is more like a newspaper or magazine and should have been copy-edited. I just expect slightly higher standards of places that call themselves news or attempt to be a source.
