Globe piece

Recommended reading in the Globe and Mail today:

Konrad Yakabuski's Report on Business analysis of Quebecor's labour woes at Quebec City's Journal de Quebec and pending contract talks at Journal de Montreal.

The focus: Newsroom multi-tasking to provide content for print, the Internet and television.

"It already works that way at most newspapers in North America, including those that belong to Quebecor's English-language Sun chain," says Yakabuski.

"So, what's the reluctance in Quebec, where La Presse only recently came to an agreement with its print journalists that allows their work to be posted on the newspaper's website?"

He has some interesting insights on that reluctance and differences in how the late Quebecor founder Pierre Peladeau and son Pierre Karl Peladeau did and does business.
