The Winnipeg Trib: 29 Years Ago

Wow, on 27 August 1980 the Winnipeg Tribune closed it's doors. I can still remember those yellow boxes and their comics !

I remember being downtown and startled by the news. Though I was still a kid then, I knew wrong when I saw it. Thomson and Southam colluded to kill two newspapers (the Trib and the Ottawa Journal), and Thomson took possession of the Trib name and presses so that no one could easily start a new paper. It was shameful, to put it mildly.
