The newspaper La Presse notes that Maclean's magazine has "done it again" with its controversial current cover on the student strikes and demonstrations in Quebec.
'The latest issue shows the a photo of a protester in fury, whose red mask reveals only the eyes, under the title "Quebec's new ruling class."
The newspaper points out that it's only a year and a half since Maclean's raised a furor with (and was reprimanded for) its cover image of Bonhomme holding a briefcase full of money and a coverline calling Quebec "the most corrupt province."
The main feature of the current issue is by Quebec bureau chief Martin Patriquin, accompanied by a column by Paul Wells.Patriquin tells La Presse that he does not believe the new issue gives a distorted picture of the situation. "I am completely comfortable with the coverage," he said.
