Montreal paper expands online business news offerings

October 1, 2009

Bryan Demchinsky, business editor of the Montreal Gazette, writes Thursday about how the paper is expanding its online business news offerings.

Demchinsky writes, “A new departmental business blog called Inc. Ink has been launched. It will be one of the elements on a new Web page on montrealgazette.com called Business Observer. As the name suggests, the page will take its cue from the one you are reading, offering insight and commentary on the issues of the day from staff columnists and freelance contributors. It also will serve, we hope, as a forum for debate in the Quebec business community, as well as the community at large.

“In the weeks ahead, we will also roll out several new pages. These will include a features page, archiving the best of the insight and entrepreneur stories from the newsprint edition, as well as online-only features gleaned from other sources. There will also be a finance page, a real-estate page and a legal page, keying off the Strictly Legal column that appears weekly in the paper.

“This will take time to accomplish, and it will be a challenge, given that resources are not, for the moment, growing proportionally to our ambitions. But it’s renewal, and it’s exciting. Green shoots, indeed.”
