MONTREAL -- Quebecor Inc. is cutting some 500 jobs at its Sun Media newspaper division, a move that includes the closure of two production facilities in Ottawa and Kingston.

The downsizing is part of the Montreal-based media group's efforts to reduce annual costs by $45 million.

There had been earlier reports Quebecor (TSX:QBR.B) would eliminate the position of publisher at some newspapers.
