Le Journal de Québec

Le Journal de Québec is a French-language daily newspaper in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. The newspaper is printed in tabloid format and has the highest circulation for a Quebec City newspaper, with its closest competitor being Le Soleil. Le Journal was founded March 6, 1967, by Pierre Péladeau, founder of Quebecor. Like its sister paper, the much more widely read Le Journal de Montréal, it was established by Pierre Péladeau and is owned by Quebecor Média. A lockout of unionized employees (members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees) that began in April 2007 continued until July 2008, it was the longest running lockout in the history of the Québec media at the time. As an answer to the lockout, the workers launched their own free daily newspaper, MédiaMatin Québec. On November 27, 2012, Le Journal de Québec launched a special edition for the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region, which includes several pages of local news for the region. The paper previously published a special Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean edition from 1973 to 1981. ()
