In an article titled, "Judging Harpernomics: We asked three economists to judge Stephen Harper on his handling of the economy," Maclean's featured Unifor’s Jim Stanford as one of the three.
Stanford uses the space to attack Harper:
Our historical analysis highlighted some key factors behind this subpar performance, reinforcing the conclusion that Conservative policies have harmed Canada more than they helped.
What the average Canadian probably doesn’t know is that Unifor is actively campaigning against the Conservatives, using radio ads and other means, as reported by The Rebel back in June.
Yet Maclean's did not disclose this information to its readers, even though it mentions another economist's Liberal associations in a disclaimer:
Disclosure: Mike Moffatt has worked with Canadian politicians and policy-makers of all political stripes to craft more effective public policy, including his most recent role as an outside economic adviser to Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau.
I’m sure that omission had nothing to do with Unifor representing Maclean's unionised journalists, right?
