Cariboo Sentinel (Barkerville)

The Cariboo Sentinel was published in Barkerville, in the Cariboo region of central British Columbia, and ran from June 1865 to October 1875. At the time, Barkerville was home to a fast-growing community of miners who had been attracted to the Cariboo region by the discovery of gold. The Sentinel was published by George Wallace, and its stated objective was not only to disseminate “mining intelligence,” but also to eradicate “official abuse[s]” of power, both within the Cariboo region and beyond (vol. 1, no. 1, p. 2).
