Historic Newspaper Comes to an End

The newspaper "La Presse" rolled out it's final print edition of their publication yesterday.

La Presse is the third-most-circulated newspaper in Canada by weekly circulation.

That has come to an end.

The company has shifted to a digital presence only, after 134 years in print.

In a special message inside the paper in both French and English, La Presse president Pierre-Elliot Levasseur thanked readers for their loyalty.

He added that the decision to go completely digital was not taken lightly.

It is owned today by Groupe Gesca, a subsidiary of Power Corporation of Canada.
