Editor’s Note: In an opinion article published in The Gateway’s September 18, 2013 issue titled “Karen Leibovici’s race for mayor a conflict of interest,” the article stated that The Medicine Shoppe, an Edmonton-based pharmacy business, is a business owned by Katz Group Canada Inc.
In actuality, the Katz Group agreed to sell this pharmacy franchise to the McKesson Corporation in January, 2012. The Gateway takes full responsibility for the misinformation that was published in this issue and truly apologizes for any confusion it may have caused. In actuality, there is no direct connection between Edmonton mayoral candidate Karen Leibovici and Katz Group Canada Inc.
This publication will use greater care in the future to ensure such regrettable mistakes do not occur again and promise to publish stories at the quality expected of a student newspaper at the University of Alberta.
