Quebecor locks out Le Journal de Montreal

After a 15 month lockout at Le Journal de Quebec, Quebecor is back at it again, this time in Montreal. The issue: multitasking across different media, particularly the internet. Quebecor continues to try to find a way to make convergence work, even though convergence hasn’t worked since it was first conceived ten years ago. This will be interesting to watch; Le Journal itself was launched in the 1960’s after another media labor dispute.
