Local residents band together to support Quebec community newspaper

As Quebec’s newspapers testify in front of the National Assembly about the challenges facing the province’s journalism outlets, the Gleaner newspaper is now relying entirely on volunteers to survive, a report from CTV Montreal says.

According to the report, a group of concerned citizens have since relaunched the newspaper using crowdsourced donations. Thus far, they’ve published two print issues but without a proper newsroom, they’ve been forced to make do out of a nearby café.
