The Sunday Express was an English-language weekly newspaper published in Montreal.

Foundation[edit]

The paper was published by Midnight founder Joe Azaria, who also tried without success to turn the paper into a daily, under the name Daily Express. That experiment lasted less than a year, as the paper was unable to compete with the then-dominant Montreal Star and the second place Montreal Gazette (now Montreal's only English daily). [1]

Acquisition and closure by Quebecor[edit]

In 1974, the Sunday Express was acquired by Quebecor, which ran it until closing the paper in 1985. [2][3]

Notable contributors[edit]

Contributors included Antonia Zerbisias, who briefly worked there at the start of her career, [4] as well as drama critic turned theatre director Marianne Ackerman.
