FREDERICTON — The Canadian Army has had to reprint 10,000 calendars for 2013 after discovering the original copies put holidays, such as Easter, Labour Day and Thanksgiving, on the wrong dates.

Kristina Davis, the Army’s manager of outreach and stakeholder relations, says they had used a corrupted template for the year.

She says the Army also improved the wording of captions under the pictures used for each month in the new version of the calendar.

Davis says it cost $11,796 to reprint all 10,000 copies of the calendars, which include pictures highlighting the work of the Canadian Army at home and abroad.

She says the calendars are distributed each year to businesses, community leaders and members of the media.

She didn’t know how many of the calendars had been distributed before the problem was discovered.

Davis says a stricter design and review process will be used in the future to ensure the problem doesn’t happen again.
