Maclean’s essay stirs up anger

That Macleans essay has people steamed: the Journal says this is the third time the magazine has insulted Quebec – although, to be fair, its 2010 claim that Quebec was corrupt was borne out by evidence at the Charbonneau commission – and Philippe Couillard said it was an article of very poor quality.

Essay author Andrew Potter has hedged, saying on Facebook (link is in the La Presse article) that his piece “makes a few assertions that I wish to retract. It also contains some rhetorical flourishes […] for which I wish to apologize.” TVA also reports on the apology (video).
