Bonjour! As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of our acquisition of The Huffington Post, we are excited to continue our global expansion with the roll out of Le Huffington Post Quebec. Following the successful launch of Huffington Post Canada in May, the new site will be run by a strong locally-based editorial team with deep personal and professional roots in the province. Led by the site's managing editor, Patrick White, this French-language edition will encompass all things Québec and its staff will include Jean-Philippe Cipriani, as news editor and Tamy-Emma Pepin, as managing blog editor. Bloggers who will be contributing to the site include: Michel Martelly, Yves-François Blanchet, Michel Kelly Gagnon, Julius Grey, Anne Marie Withenshaw, and more. This is also the first time we'll have two HuffPost editions in the same country!
Find out more about the site from Arianna Huffington's blog post, and make sure you check out our other global sites, France's Le Huffington Post and The Huffington Post UK.

We're excited to announce that The Huffington Post has announced plans to partner with El País to create El Huffington Post, an international Spanish-language version of The Huffington Post. The partnership will combine HuffPost's powerful platform with a strong Spanish editorial network. El Huffington Post is recruiting an editorial team in preparation for its launch which will happen in the first quarter of 2012.
El Huffington Post will combine the local editorial expertise of El País, the leading Spanish newspaper and one of the most widely-respected global news dailies, with The Huffington Post's pioneering combination of original reporting, aggregation, leading-edge commenting forum, dynamic social-engagement tools, and vibrant platform for a wide range of bloggers. The partners will also focus on original editorial content through an affiliated network of journalists and bloggers.
This expands The Huffington Post's global presence which already includes HuffPost UK and HuffPost Canada. It comes on the heels of October's announcement about the launch of Le Huffington Post , a French-language edition of the site, to be run in conjunction with The Le Monde Group and Les Nouvelles Editions Independantes.
