Le Devoir in reverse type

An April Fool’s Day prank I’m sure, Le Devoir this morning printed its front page backwards for home delivery editions. A note on Page 2 explains the reverse, wishing readers a “Joyeux poisson d’avril”. Interestingly, all the news printed on the front page is real, but needs to be held up to a mirror to read properly.

UPDATE: According to my source at the paper, the front page on the newsstand wasn’t reversed because that would have messed up the bar code and caused chaos for retailers. Newsstand editions instead come with a complimentary copy of the People’s Weekly World.
