Turns out Maclean's isn't sponsoring columnist's bid to revamp Conservative party
Scott Gilmore says he’s paying for the costs of events to discuss the future of the CPC
Friday, May 5th, 2017
Maclean’s magazine is not sponsoring a cross-Canada dinner tour organized by columnist Scott Gilmore to discuss creating a new federal right-of-centre party — even though some of the tour’s posters read “Sponsored by Maclean’s.”
“Some marketing materials were distributed, erroneously stating that Maclean’s is a sponsor, but that is not the case,” Andrea Goldstein, senior director of communications at Rogers, wrote in an email.
Rogers clarified its role after iPolitics asked about the posters featured on the registration webpages for Gilmore’s “New Conservative Dinners”; the next such event is taking place Monday in Ottawa.
Yes, but ... yes but one of their senior editors, Andrew Coyne, appeared as a 'draw'' to the event and one of their reporters did a promotional piece on the meeting ... promoting a kind of metrosexual conservatism, very much in Coyne's style.
Since when does MacLeans cover the first stirrings of a new political party? Is that even 'news' yet?
