Montreal Gazette to go Web-only on Sundays

An inter­est­ing piece of news for you who hap­pen to read the news­pa­per in Montreal. On Aug. 8, the Montreal Gazette will stop pub­lish­ing its Sunday edi­tion and go Web-only for a day, pub­lisher Alan Allnutt said in a state­ment on the paper’s web­site.

The Saturday paper will, for all intents and pur­poses, become the Sunday paper, the “Weekend Gazette.”
