Les Presses Chinoises (English:The Chinese Press) is a weekly Chinese newspaper in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The other main Chinese paper in Montreal is Sept Days.

Controversy[edit]

Les Presses Chinoises has been accused [1] of being a propaganda tool for the Chinese Communist Party in Canada by the Falun Gong. This accusation is based on the paper's anti-Falun Gong stance. On one occasion, the paper published and distributed throughout Canada, a free 32-page tabloid, without a single advertisement, condemning the Falun Gong spiritual group. [2]
