Active since 1914, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry is one of the three Regular Force infantry regiments of the Canadian Armed Forces. It has received 41 battle honours, with three of its soldiers having been awarded the Victoria Cross during World War I. The Patrician, also known as The Esquimalt patrician, is a regimental journal first published in May 1933 and devoted to the interests of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry’s past and present. Initially published quarterly, it was suspended during the Korean War. In 1953, The Patrician started publishing again, as a semestrial paper, until 1960 when it became annual because of financial restraints. This unique publication contains regiment notes, military news and advertisements from local businesses, and offers a fascinating look into Canadian prairie military history.

Grain Grower's Guide (1908-1928) is described as "the most important publication of the early farm movement." (The Encyclopedia of Saskatchewan). It was first published by the Grain Growers Grain Company (GGGC) under the editorial leadership of E. A. Partridge, one of the founders of the farming cooperative. GGG later became the Country Guide, which continues to be published in Winnipeg by the United Grain Growers.
Edited by J. W. Bengough (1851-1923), "cartoonist, editor, publisher, author, entertainer, and politician." Aptly described as "bombastically nationalistic." (John Wilson Bengough, Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online)
