The Year's Best Canadian Editorial Cartoons

Book - 2004

Our vocabulary was enriched this year by expressions like “wardrobe malfunction” and “circumpolar tour” which, to our surprise, were not uttered by Conrad Black. Canada held a general election while, in the Republic to the south, an absentee National Guardsman and a Vietnam veteran battled it out. Saddam Hussein was captured in time for Christmas and Canadian cartoonists, for their part, received a bounty of riches. Think Belinda Stronach, Alfonso Gagliano, George Radwanski, Myriam Bedard, Adrienne Clarkson, Svend Robinson and Ontario's “pointy-headed kitten-eating Martian.” Other than that, it was business as usual: Don Cherry making controversial declarations, same-sex marriages riling the Church, trouble plaguing Air Canada and Jean Chretien's continued long goodbye. We made fun of those too. It's all here between the covers: more than 250 cartoons by the best in the profession.
