Peel`s Prairie Provinces Newspapers

From the University of Alberta, part of a larger historical collection, is a set of 13 Prairie newspapers, more than 10,000 individual newspaper issues:

Alberta Non-Partisan: October 1917 - July 1919
Le courrier de l'ouest: October 1905 - December 1915
The Gateway (Ûniversity of Alberta student newspaper): November 1910 - August 2006
Grain Growers Guild: August 1909 - December 1919
The Illustrated War News: April - August 1885
Le Franco-Albertain: November 1967 - December 2000
La Survivance: November 1928 - November 1967
Le patriote de l'Ouest: August 1910 - March 1932
Poundmaker(University of Alberta student newspaper): September 1972 -April 1974
Red Deer News: January 1906 - January 1926
The people's weekly (CCF): September 1950 - December 1952
L'Union: January - June 1919 and November 1923
Wetaskiwin Times: January 1928 - December 1931

I especially like the Illustrated War News for coverage of the 1885 North West Rebellion. The digitization was done by Commonwealth Imaging in Calgary, the same company that digitized Victoria`s British Colonist.
