Wave of solidarity for regional media
” What can we do ? For the past week, the question has been on the lips of the Estriens, who are worried about the future of La Tribune and regional news in Quebec. Journalists, media, business people, elected officials and citizens created a wave of moral support for regional newspapers on Wednesday night at Siboire Boulevard Jacques-Cartier.
“If you are a government, you can tax foreign companies and penalize those who profit from information produced by others. If you are a political figure, you can influence, mobilize, invest and prioritize. If you are a business person or a community organization, you can buy your advertisement in your newspaper. And if like me you are a citizen, you can pay your information, renew your subscription, mobilize you and stand together for your democracy and your identity, “declared in a speech committed the citizen Sondes Allal.
Crowded with solidarity people, the second floor of the microbrewery was animated by the various speeches, but especially by the exchanges of support.
