Publisac and Mirabel: TC Transcontinental Will Appeal

Canada NewsWire

MONTRÉAL, April 20, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - TC Transcontinental (TSX: TCL.A) (TSX: TCL.B) will appeal the Superior Court's decision, rendered today, dismissing its motion to quash the City of Mirabel's by-law on the distribution of printed advertising material. The by-law requires TC Transcontinental to abide by the opt-in system which, if maintained, would lead to the end of the distribution of the Publisac by TC Transcontinental in Mirabel.  

"We are disappointed with the Court's decision, and we will challenge it on appeal," said Patrick Brayley, Senior Vice President, Distribution, TC Transcontinental. "In the current inflationary context, and at a time when the population is facing an unprecedented rise in prices, the social and economic relevance of the Publisac is greater than ever. Indeed, the Publisac, in addition to giving consumers access to discounts, distributes local newspapers at an advantageous cost, helps merchants to attract customers and compete against the giants of e-commerce, and supports thousands of direct and indirect jobs."

TC Transcontinental reiterates that the opt-out system is simple and effective for those who do not wish to receive the Publisac. As proof, more than 200,000 Québec households use it.
