Canadian cultural policy, MacLean's Magazine and the coverage of the death of Pierre Trudeau

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This paper focuses on the coverage of the death and funeral of Pierre Trudeau in Canada’s national Anglophone news magazine, Maclean’s. In addition to examining the specific nature of that coverage, it seeks to locate it within the discourse of celebration which the magazine frequently deploys in its construction of Canadian-ness. Maclean’s is one of a number of magazines which have benefited from federal government support policies in the media field, which are described and reflected upon. The paper finally considers whether all of the coverage analysed suggests that Maclean’s’ relatively protected status is being utilised to maximum civic benefit.
