Le Journal de Montréal

Le Journal de Montréal is a daily tabloid newspaper published in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It has the largest circulation of any newspaper in Quebec and is also the largest 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. It is known for its sensationalist news, and its columnists who are often public figures. Since 2013 the newspaper also has an investigation desk that published several major news about Quebec's politics, businesses, crime and national security. It is the only Montreal newspaper that prints on Sundays since La Presse and The Gazette dropped their Sunday editions (La Presse has had an electronic edition on Sunday since the launch of La Presse +). Its success is attributed to its ability to nail the zeitgeist of Quebec profond: defensively nationalist, excessively proud and self-consciously wary of political elites. ()
