Regina Leader-Post Foundation
Regina Leader-Post was first established as The Leader in 1883 by Nicholas Flood Davin, shortly after Edgar Dewdney, who was lieutenant governor of the Northwest Territories, made the decision to name this site Pile-O-Bones, which was then unoccupied and featureless. It was considered, under the name Regina in honor of Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, who was wife of the then Governor General of Canada, as territorial capital in place of the previously established towns of Battleford, Troy and Fort Qu’Appelle, since, presumably, it had acquired ample land at the site for resale.
The first building of the leader, Regina, Assiniboia, in 1884, was given as follows:
“A group of prominent villagers approached lawyer Nicholas Flood Davin shortly after his presence in Regina and seduced him into establishing the headquarters of a newspaper. Davin listened to his offer, and contributed his $5,000 in seed capital. Regina Leader was in charge of printing her first publication, which was given on March 1, 1883. Published weekly, by the mercurial Davin, almost that the next moment managed to reach prestige in the national territory, during the course of the Northwest Rebellion and the controversial trial of Louis Riel. Thanks to this, Davin gained immediate access to developing events, and all his news was picked up by the national press, which led the leader briefly to national prominence.
Davin’s biggest blow was sending his reporter, Mary McFadyen Maclean, to conduct an interview in prison, accompanied by her colleague Riel. Maclean did it, posing as a French-speaking Catholic cleric, and interviewing Riel in French under the nose of English-speaking guards who did not understand the guard.
