Lockout +17 months

The Journal de Montreal lockout of 250 employees is at 17 months and counting.

For bilingual TSF readers, editors of Rue Frontenac - the online lockout newspaper being packaged daily - comment on 17 months on the sidelines.

We've always felt the locked out Montreal employees and their union should have gone the route of Journal de Quebec employees during its 16-month lockout/strike and publish a print newspaper.

The Quebec lockout/strike paper MediaMatin, published five days a week with a press run of 40,000, was more in-your-face-Quebecor and more visible on the street.
