These closures result in the loss of approximately 30 jobs per plant.  Transcontinental  keeped  these plants running at the request of CN2i, publisher of Le Soleil, Le Droit, Le Nouvelliste, Le Quotidien-Le Progrès, La Tribune and La Voix de l'Est, because of their market proximity. The other  work from these plants, including the Saturday editions of CN2i dailies, will be  transferred to Transcontinental Transmag in Montréal.
