Ottawa should pull ads from Quebecor papers: Layton

Canada's New Democrats are calling on the federal government to yank all government advertising from two Quebecor-owned newspapers beset with labour troubles.

NDP leader Jack Layton made the annoucement this morning following an emotional meeting with 150 locked-out workers at the Journal de Montreal.
