MONTRÉAL, May 2, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Like all Quebecers, Quebecor's management has just learned of controlling shareholder Pierre Karl Péladeau's decision to retire from politics. We take note of his decision to devote himself to his family and extend our friendship and support under the circumstances.
Out of consideration for Mr. Péladeau, the Corporation does not intend to comment further on this matter.
