One year of MédiaMatinQuébec

The longest lock-out in Canadian newspaper history made free MédiaMatinQuébec celebrate its first birthday today. The labor conflict at Journal de Québec (Quebecor) started 22 April 2007.

From 24 April 2007, locked-out employees started their own free daily, MédiaMatinQuébec, distributed in 40,000 copies five days a week.

The paper published special 56 issue today with their views on the conflict and the history of the paper and the lock-out.

St the conference of Canadian newspaper publishers they will also present their case. I hope to talk to them there as I will be giving a presentation at the conference.

The paper also have their own YouTube movie where distribution is showed and the conflict explained (in their view)
