Why the Change?

For reasons I do not even remotely understand, Maisonneuve, one of the finest magazines to come out of Canada in a very, very long time, is changing its format to become a sort of Toronto Life for Montréal.

In just two years, Maisonneuve has been nominated for fourteen National Magazine Awards and taken home four of these—including the prestigious Magazine of the Year in 2005. Looking to solidify its place in the market, Maisonneuve is transforming itself from a national arts magazine into a magazine of Montreal life and city culture. The “new” Maisonneuve will be launched at the end of September 2006.

Can someone explain this nonsense to me?
