Atlantic Canada is a little different from the rest of the country. But that doesn't make it a different one altogether!

The snark came fast and furiously on social media in response.

And Air Canada was doing so well!
The airline has generated plenty of goodwill on social media in the past few months after offering Canadians in London a free flight home for Christmas.
The Air Canada Foundation also released a touching video this week that showed Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price receiving a gift from a boy from his hometown of Anahim Lake, B.C.
We're sure Air Canada, or the ad agency it hired, made an honest mistake here. But really, they should know their consumer base better than this!
