Apology

The Canadian Lawyer team would like to apologize for the image on our September 2014 cover. The image was intended to reinforce the subject of the cover article – the lack of transparency in the judicial appointments process and the resulting limited diversity on the bench – but as we have heard from a number of readers, it conveyed a very different message and undermined this important discussion.
 
As such, we have elected to remove the image from our September issue for as long as it lives online.
 
The editorial team at Canadian Lawyer is committed to a continued dialogue on diversity and all issues relevant to advancing the Canadian legal profession. This has always been at the core of our mission, and we remain committed to this now and into the future.
 
We thank our readers who cared enough to share their opinions on this important issue, and we sincerely hope that they remain faithful to our magazine.
 
Yours truly,
 
Gail J. Cohen
Editor in Chief
