Nov 021981

Published by later-to-be Freedom Party Action Director Marc Emery, nine issues of the Downtown London Metrobulletin were published from 1981 to 1982. Emery launched the Downtown London Metrobulletin after leaving the broadsheet newspaper he founded in 1980, the London Tribune. Emery and fellow investor/writer Robert Metz left the London Tribune over its editorial policy: Emery’s vision of a hard-hitting newspaper was trumped by other investors, who did not want their friends and business connections to be criticized in the paper. The Downtown London Metrobulletin was succeeded by the London Metrobulletin in 1983, which Emery launched after buying the printing assets of the London Tribune (which had failed following the departure of Emery and Metz).

Contents of Bonus Issue #4.5:
Comrade Bob pulls off a fast one; Just who supports the B.I.A.?: Given a free choice, almost no one; Letters to the editor of the London Free Press.
