The coverage of the War in the print media of the period, reflected its significance to the public and value to publishers. Several newspapers had correspondents in South Africa and emphasized coverage of the War at home. While the accuracy of some of these accounts has been questioned, some formed the basis of books. La Patrie was owned by MP Joseph-Israel Tarte, and referred to as "the organ of the Minister of Public Works" in the House of Commons Debates (March 13, 1900,p. 1835, col. 1). La Patrie carried a section titled "Parlement fédéral". MP Henri Bourasssa later founded Le Devoir.
Titles of newspapers published during the period of the War can be located in several sources such as the The Canadian newspaper directory (Montreal, A. McKim., 1892-1919) or Page, Robert J.D., Imperialism and Canada, 1895-1903 (1972), listed in this section.
