UPDATED – Electronic Rights Defence Committee Claim Period Is Coming to an End‏

Just a little more than a week remains for freelance writers to file claims in the Electronic Rights Defence Committee class action against The Gazette and the newspaper’s various owners. Claims must be postmarked by March 5, 2015. PLEASE SEND TO THE ADDRESS ON THE FORM AND NOT ELECTRONICALLY.

Claim forms are available at http://erdc.ca/?p=408. Freelance writers who wrote for The Gazette between 1985 and 2010 should fill one out if they want to take part in the distribution. Writers will receive shares of Postmedia A stock according to a point system that was approved at a special ERDC general meeting in 2012.

Claimants must list all freelance stories they wrote for The Gazette during the period covered by the class action. The on-line resource Canadian Newsstand (Proquest) may be helpful in doing this. It is available through many libraries including the Bibliothèque et archives nationales du Québec. To gain access to the collection by getting a free BAnQ card, consult http://www.banq.qc.ca/services/pret/carte/index.html.
