- Manitoba’s longest-running French-language weekly, La Liberté was founded by Adélard Langevin, Archbishop of St. Boniface, and first appeared May 20, 1913. A crusading newspaper, La Liberté was the voice of the French-speaking population of Manitoba and defender of its linguistic and religious rights, forcing its principal rivals, Le Manitoba and Le Soleil de l’Ouest, to eventually cease publication. Still published today, its focus is on news and information for the province's francophones.
The University of Manitoba Libraries has digitized several Manitoban newspapers and funded the digitization of the Winnipeg Tribune, the Manitoban, and Czas (The Times). These digitized newspapers document every facet of life in Manitoba throughout its history, providing an invaluable resource for historical research.
