Stakeholders from different backgrounds support the Publisac

MONTREAL, Dec. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stakeholders from different backgrounds are expressing their support to the Publisac, owned by TC Transcontinental (TSX: TCL.A TCL.B), and calling for a constructive dialogue with the City of Montréal to ensure that the current distribution model is maintained. By rallying in support of the Publisac, these stakeholders stand united in a historic moment:
Centrale des syndicats démocratiques (CSD)Syndicat des travailleurs industriels et commerciaux (STIC)Syndicat des Teamsters (Québec)Unifor – the largest union in Québec’s pulp and paper sectorFédération de l’industrie manufacturière (FIM-CSN)Fédération nationale des communications (FNC-CSN)Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ)Conseil du patronat du Québec (Québec Employer Council)Hebdos QuébecMétro MédiaThe SuburbanAlliance Forêt BoréaleConseil de l’industrie forestière du Québec (CIFQ)Resolute Forest ProductsTable des élus du Saguenay–Lac-St-JeanTable des élus de la ManicouaganAll agree: the Publisac is currently irreplaceable for households, local newspapers and merchants who use it, in addition to generating thousands of direct and indirect jobs in Québec. They recognize the importance of the environmental transition and believe that the Publisac is a responsibly managed product.They are joining their voices to ask the City of Montréal not to follow through on the recommendations of the Commission permanente sur l’eau, l’environnement, le développement durable et les grands parcs (Standing Committee on Water, the Environment, Sustainable Development and Large Parks). All stakeholders advocate instead the establishment of a dialogue between the City of Montréal and all interested parties. Such a dialogue should identify the best ways to achieve reduction at source within the current distribution system, while taking into account all aspects (environmental, social and economic) of sustainable development and the democratic role played by local information. It is up to the population to determine the future of the Publisac, by easily exercising the opt-out if it wishes, and not the public authorities.About TC TranscontinentalTC Transcontinental is a leader in flexible packaging in North America, and Canada’s largest printer.
