My cartoons in "Portfoolio 20"

Back-cover blurb:
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.

Here is a selection of my cartoons published in Portfoolio 20:
