Maclean's owner Rogers expresses 'regret' over Quebec article

The owners of Maclean’s magazine say they “sincerely regret” any offence caused by a cover story on Quebec corruption that drew unanimous condemnation in Parliament. On Thursday, Rogers Publishing issued a statement that stopped short of the apology Quebec Premier Jean Charest and others had demanded for the cover story that declared Quebec to be the “most corrupt province in Canada.” But the Toronto-based publisher acknowledged the importance of the Quebec market to its sales numbers.
"On behalf of the company, we sincerely regret any offence that the cover may have caused,” said Brian Segal, president of Rogers Publishing. “We value all of our customers and their perspective. Quebec is an important market for the company and we look forward to participating in the dynamic growth of the province and its citizens."
