"Le Journal de Quebec" is a daily news publication from Quebec City in Quebec, Canada. Printed in French, it features comprehensive news coverage of current events in various categories, such as sports, politics and business. Formatted as a tabloid in print, the newspaper is also available to read online.
In circulation since 1967, "Le Journal de Quebec" was established by French-Canadian businessman, Pierre Peladeau, and is owned by his media company, Quebecor. Peladeau, who was born in Outremont, Quebec in 1925, created his first major publication, "Le Journal de Montreal," in 1964, taking advantage of a writers strike occurring at the local major publication of that time.
