La Liberté

La Liberté

This weekly Manitoba French-language newspaper merged with the Saskatchewan newspaper Le patriote de l'Ouest to form La Liberté et le patriote, in 1941. By 1971, it was known as La Liberté again. The digitization of the entire run of La Liberté was completed in recognition of 100 years of its publication. Thank you to our partners, the Société historique de Saint-Boniface, who coordinated this project; the Société franco-manitobaine and the Université de Saint-Boniface, who contributed funding for this project; and the Manitoba Legislative Library, who provided microfilmed copies for digitization for this project.
