- The Manitoba News-Letter belonged to John Christian Schultz and was published twice a week from September 30, 1870 to July 1, 1971. It was anti-Catholic and pro-Canadian and a violent opponent of supporters of the provisional government. After it was sold to the Manitoba Printing Company, the paper reappeared as The Manitoba Liberal.
