January - June 1985

Table of Contents


Of all the objectives that Freedom Party has set for itself in it's first election, possibly the single most satisfying accomplishment for us is that we created a choice. As acknowledged by the election day editorial cartoon in the London Free Press, Freedom Party left its mark in the political community.

In this issue: Read about Fp's election strategy from campaign director Marc Emery and his summary of the candidates fielded in the London area. Click here to read Fp's election literature. We recount how local feminist activists did their best to make certain that Freedom Party candidates would not attend their all-candidates debates. After the dust settled, Libertarian representatives were quoted in an opinion article in The London Free Press that they considered our vote totals "disappointing". Our response to them is here. Local media coverage of our campaign is also included below. And of course, to all our supporters, thanks for making Freedom Party's first election a success!
