Actual Ottawa headline: "School sign mistakenly honours Wilson Phillips singer"

A new sign for Cairine Wilson Secondary School in Orleans had to be fixed not long after it was installed because of an embarrassing spelling mistake. 
The sign, which read "Carnie Wilson Secondary School," was fixed Saturday morning. It did not have to be entirely replaced. 
The high school is named after Cairine Wilson, the first woman appointed to Canada's Senate. 
Carnie Wilson, a TV personality and daughter of The Beach Boys's Brian Wilson, is the lead singer of pop group Wilson Phillips.
Here's a photo from the sign from CBC Ottawa:
