    Look at this article

    The leader of the Parti québécois, Jean-François Lisée, has committed a small error in geographic in one of his Twitter posts this weekend…

    It is in welcoming the skier quebec’s Justine Dufour-Lapointe for his silver medal, Sunday, that the politician used the hashtag #Pyongyang2018…

    The catch is that Pyongyang is in North Korea… And the olympics are held in Pyeongchang… in South Korea!

    Obviously, the message has disappeared from the twittosphère. It is, however, remained several hours on the profile of Mr. Lisée, even if several users had pointed out the error.

    Some have also criticized the politician to use the phrase “medal of québec”.


    However, the day before, Mr. Lisée had written correctly Pyeongchang on Twitter.

    A first medal in quebec at Pyeongchang! Congrats to @MaxParrot for its superb performance and her silver medal 🥈👍#PyeongChang2018 #Quebec
