The British Whig was founded in 1834 by Edward John Barker (1799–1884).[3] It merged in 1926 with the Kingston Daily Standard (founded 1908) to become the Kingston Whig-Standard. The word "Kingston" was dropped from the name in 1973, but was reinstated in the early 1990s. The present publication is Canada's oldest continuously published daily newspaper. (The first Canadian daily is the now defunct Montreal Daily Advertiser.[4])
