CBC Shakespeare Goof

In one of CBC Online's articles about expressing the election in Shakespearian terms, they have the paragraph:

NDP Leader Jack Layton as Brutus in Julius Caesar, asking his modern-day friends, Romans and countrymen: "Lend me your votes. I come to bury Martin, not to praise him."

Ugh, it was Mark Anthony who said "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears," in his famous speech to rouse the people of Rome against Caesar's killers.
