- The Manitoba Liberal was established after the sale of the Manitoba News-Letter to the Manitoba Printing Company. On July 1, 1871, the News-Letter announced that it would be replaced by the Liberal and urged its readers to subscribe to it. The Liberal appeared weekly from July 12, 1871 until May 1873 and was continued by the Nor’Wester in 1874.
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.
