The Gazette , founded in 1785, is the principal daily newspaper of English language published in the Quebec. Established with Montreal, it is available everywhere to Quebec and in the anglophone provinces of the Canada.
Been based in 1785 by Fleury Mesplet, the newspaper was initially named the Gazette of the trade and arts person of Montreal . The newspaper ceased being published when Fleury Mesplet and Valentine Jautard were thrown in prison to have tried to agitate the people at the time of the Guerre of American independence. The same year, the Mesplet liberal had founded a maconnic cabin.
A few years later, the newspaper returned, this time in a French-English bilingual edition. The newspaper was finally bought by an anglophone owner who only transformed it into newspaper of English language.
During several years, the pulling of the Montreal Gazette was eclipsed by the other anglophone daily newspaper of Montreal, the Montreal Daily Star , which was read much more. However, the Star was closed following long a Grève, ceasing its publication in 1979, less than one year after the strike had been completed.
Today, the assistantship of The Gazette is concentrated in the anglophone communities and allophones anglicized of Montreal, which compose about half of the population of the island of Montreal. Many French-speaking people read also English; more half of the population montréalaise is bilingual. Recently, the newspaper launched a vast campaign of publicity to target the bilingual French-speaking people, at the same time adjusting the style of its cultural reports.
The newspaper likes to put forward the fact that it is the oldest Québécois daily newspaper -- Quebec' S oldest daily newspaper -- on first page (oldest North-American newspaper (and inhabitant of Quebec) being The Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph , a weekly magazine).
It is held by CanWest Global.
