Quote, unquote: Hey, Quebec, it's not all about you

"We’re cheeky, outrageous, provocative, pushy and occasionally hyperbolic with everyone— not just Quebec. Maybe we should publish a notice on every non-Quebec cover. Here’s Uncle Sam, giving the ‘up yours’ motion to Maclean’s readers. Here’s the pope, literally turning his back on the Catholic Church’s myriad sex scandals. Here’s Adolf Hitler, making an ideological return to Europe, Pakistan and Russia. You see, Quebec? It’s not all about you."
-- Maclean's Quebec bureau chief Martin Patriquin, responding to a miscellany of criticisms from various other media outlets (whom he characterized as "self-appointed defenders") concerning last week's cover (shown) about the student uprising.
