- La Libre parole, a weekly, started May 4, 1916. Larger and more carefully laid-out than its predecessors, this Liberal newspaper could not compete with its Conservative rivals Le Manitoba and La Liberté and ceased publication in 1919. This digitized collection ends with the September 20, 1917 issue.
"William Buckingham and William Coldwell, two young newspaper men on their way to the Settlement to start our first newspaper, the NorWester... brought a printing press, type, paper and ink, experience as reporters and printers, a stock of books for sale, high hopes, and definite convictions about what the future of the Settlement should be." -- Aileen Garland, The Nor'Wester and the Men Who Established It MHS Transactions Series 3, 1959-60 season
