Canadian FreeBSD mirror listed in the docs is down

Giles Orr
At https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/mirrors-ftp.html
this email address is listed as a contact for the following two URLs:

ftp://ftp.ca.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ (ftp)
ftp://ftp2.ca.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ (ftp)

As I live in Canada I tried to download from a Canadian source: both
addresses return "unknown host."

I'm CC:ing [hidden email] because the likelier problem (no
offense) is that the Canadian mirror is no longer being maintained and
the document should be updated.

Fwd: Delivery Status Notification (Failure)

Giles Orr
As guessed in my previous message (included below after all the
headers) the problem appears to be that the documentation needs
updating.  Thanks.

Did you really just apologize for pointing out the ca.FreeBSD.org
mirrors aren't maintained? Brings a patriotic tear to my eye, no doubt
about it!
