MHS Centennial Business: Carberry News-Express

On 5 July 1889, the Carberry News was first issued by R. E. Belfrey as the News and Norfolk Intelligencer and Advertiser. The Carberry Express was established in 1892 and, in October 1910, James L. Cowie amalgamated the two papers as the Carberry News-Express. In October 2012, the Carberry News-Express was acquired by FP Canadian Newspapers LLP, which also owned the Brandon Sun and Winnipeg Free Press. The newspaper ceased publication on 23 December 2019.
