Journal de Montreal

Le Journal de Montréal is a daily tabloid newspaper published in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is the largest-circulating newspaper in Quebec, and the highest-circulating French-language daily newspaper in North America. Established by Pierre Péladeau in 1964, it is owned by Quebecor Media, and is hence a sister publication of TVA flagship CFTM-DT. It is also Canada's largest tabloid newspaper. Its head office is located on 4545 Frontenac Street in Montreal. Le Journal de Montréal covers mostly local and provincial news, as well as sports, arts and justice. While it prints no editorials, it is famous for its sensationalism, and its populist Quebec-nationalist perspective. It is the only Montreal newspaper that prints on Sundays, ever since La Presse and The Gazette dropped the Sunday editions most recently. In 2004, it attained 320,658 Saturday-edition copies sold, exceeding its nearest competitor, La Presse, by 40,000 copies. [1]
