In 1924 Arnold (A. B.) Dyck became publisher and editor of the paper. In 1936 G. S. Derksen purchased the paper and became its editor. The Post contains world news as well as news from the Mennonite settlements of Manitoba and other provinces, and is read by Mennonites of Canada, Mexico, and Paraguay.
