Though, Ashley was banned from Maclean's honors list for giving an interview to a LGBT magazine that never was published. Maclean's banned him because he talked about his young male partner and his fetish regarding urine, not because of the candid interview with the Advocate (unpublished).
This only proves Maclean's is owned by a neo-conservative who probably demanded MacIsaac's name be removed from the list or he'd fire the interviewer and the editor. However, this was never verified by Maclean's or its owner at the time,
Maclean's decision may be due to a possible hate crime by the owner of the magazine.
