In December 2014 ''Maclean's magazine'' published Jackson's account of harassment she experienced from her co-host, Hargurchet Singh Bhabra. Jackson and Bhabra had been co-hosts of a show on books, entitled ''Imprint'', during its first season, in 1994. Jackson felt her complaints over Bhabra's harassment were not taken seriously. Both she and Bhabra were replaced for the second season. Bhabra committed suicide three years later. Provided by Wikipedia
