Remember those old puzzles where a word was hidden inside a seeming innocuous sentence? For example, "Should I jump on to the red target, or on to the blue one?" contains the hidden word "Toronto" (... red target, or on to the...) Given a line of text, your task is to search for a hidden province of Canada in it: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, PEI. The hidden word may appear anywhere in the text with its letters will be in the correct order, may contain upper and/or lower case letters, and may have any non-letter characters such as punctuation or characters in between.

This line is a particularly wasteful and not too productive test case, methinks.
