It may have been covered before, but why doesn't Charlton seem to know this?  It's from the BOC website.

Somehow this escaped correction in the GPM22, so I'm leaving it here.

Apparently the Editor has received multiple complaints in the past from residents of the Okanagan Lake area and they all disagree that the image is of that lake. The Editor has decided to leave the catalogue as-is on this subject.

Closing thread.
