Patrick Gammie Laurie came west in 1869 to work on various newspapers in Manitoba. In 1878 he established his own newspaper at Battleford, The Saskatchewan Herald, which expounded a conservative and nationalist viewpoint. He observed and reported on both resistances. Since he was an ardent supporter of the Canada First Movement and the government, he had no sympathy for the Métis cause.
