Errol Salamon is a former McGill PhD student and is now a Postdoctoral Researcher and Visiting Scholar at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania.

"La Presse's new non-profit organiztional structure  demonstrates the publication's commitment to financial and editorial independence and to journalism as a public good rather than as a commodity to be sold. However, La Presse's union should have a seat on the nonprofit's new board to ensure that employees have a voice in the publication's financial and editorial decision-making."
