About Le Devoir
Le Devoir is a daily newspaper published six days a week in Montreal. It was founded on January 10, 1910 by journalist and politician Henri Bourassa. Bourassa had hoped that his newspaper would remain totally independent and would not be sold to any group, which is still the case more than a hundred years later.
