A very brief press release from Rogers Publishing came as close to an apology to Quebec as is possible without gainsaying the refusal of its editorial team at Maclean's to say it was sorry for its most recent cover story. To wit:
"On behalf of the company, we sincerely regret any offence that the cover may have caused. 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."
