Metro starts edition in Edmonton

Metro Canada today has launched a 60,000 free daily in Edmonton which will go head-to-head with Sun Media's 24 Hours (24 Heures) and CanWest's RushHour. Metro Canada is a three-way partnership with equal portions owned by Metro International, TorStar and CanWest. Why CanWest is essentially competing with itself is anyone's guess. But now three cities in Canada have three free dailies — Calgary, Ottawa and now Edmonton.
