From the public editor: Readers correct to question print ad Add to ...

In Friday’s paper we ran an ad with the words “Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ Given to President Warren S. Jeffs”. Some readers wondered why such an ad appeared in The Globe and Mail. We do review ads, but unfortunately this one was not caught.

Mr. Jeffs, as you may know, is a polygamist sect leader in the United States who was convicted last year of sexually assaulting two children, one of whom was one of his child brides.

The ad, which was due to run again, has been cancelled. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the ad has appeared in several newspapers across the United States. We thank the readers who drew this to our attention.
