Distributors for Media Matin Québec, the newspaper produced by locked out Journal de Québec workers, handed out their seven millionth copy [French only] last week.

The paper, distributed by hand, for free five days a week, first hit the streets April 24, two days after Quebecor locked out the three CUPE locals representing journalists, printers, and office staff at the newspaper.

The paper - in addition to providing the locked out workers with an outlet for their views on the strike - demonstrates that there is a thirst for high quality, local news in the city.
