JournalismIS is a broad-based campaign celebrating the contributions of quality Canadian journalism, through advertising and online conversation.
The campaign aims to rally the wider community of journalists and media workers, media corporations and media consumers to increase awareness, recognition and support for professional journalism. JournalismIS is supported by a number of national and local newspapers, broadcasters, journalist associations, unions and industry groups.
The JournalismIS campaign marks the first phase of a longer term effort to mobilize the media industry and the public to support professional journalism in Canada.

The newly elected leader of the Parti Québécois, 53-year-old Pierre Karl Péladeau is on a mission: make Quebec an independent country, able to take its place in the family of nations.
PKP, as he is universally known within Quebec, is an unlikely champion of the noble dream of Quebec independence.
Born the rich inheritor of a global printing empire, PKP has watched it contract under his stewardship, along with newspaper sales. With the approval of a previous PQ government, Péladeau became the dominant figure in Quebec cable distribution, when he added Videotron to Quebecor, the giant company with a worldwide reach which his his father had put together.
