TC Media has sold two of its Quebec papers to a new owner. Karine Desbiens purchased La Sentinelle, a weekly paper based in Chibougamau, Quebec, and regional monthly Le Jamésien. Desbiens serves as news editor for both publications.

“Today I have achieved my dream of running my own business in acquiring two flagship Northern Quebec publications,” said Desbiens in a press release. “I believe in this region’s potential and future. That is why I decided to be even more committed to the development of these newspapers. I am honoured to be able to continue their development together with my team.”
