Jean Doré, a retired journalist and senior editor at Le Journal de Québec has died at 65, following a battle with cancer.

The news was a blow to CUPE members locked out and on strike against the newspaper since April 2007. Doré, who worked at the newspaper for more than 30 years signed the first collective agreement for the journalists and photographers union.

He is survived by two sons, Robert and Stephane - who is also on strike against the newspaper - and his partner, Denise Laperrière. Céline Bourgault, his wife of 30 years, died in 1996.
