The Olympics: what gives?

I received this today in the mail. I was truly very surprised to see that the one and only sentence in French on this postcard contained 6 mistakes: 2 are spelling errors, 3 are incorrect use of accents and there is a significant idiomatic error in the use of “dans” instead of “sur”. I just hope this is a freak event and that COVAN made a good job with every other printed matter. French is one of Canada’s two official languages.
