Press review

  • For twelfth consecutive year, Influence Communication has made public its annual summary of the news that captured the attention of the media in Canada over the past 12 months. State of the News: 2017 Report© analyzes the trends in the news as well as all of the news items published or broadcast in Canada between January 1 and December 4, 2017.

  • Tech and trending: last year, media kept mocking our city's "bad" christmas tree. Last year it was bad story after bad story about the christmas tree. On twitter, Influence Communication has a great account. What they do as a business is they track how media is portraying montreal around the world and also what montreal media is talking about, in general. Meanwhile, montrealers are posting pictures of the tree on instagram. Prince arthur street is doing better by the way.

  • In the two days following the massacre at the Quebec City mosque, the shooting was the second most reported-on event in the world. When questioned if the timing of the study was appropriate, Labeaume said he wanted to have a picture of the situation before the Medias did.
