Library and Archives Canada looks back at Bado’s career

Accustomed to portraying personalities in the news and letting his drawings do the talking, Bado, cartoonist for Le Droit, recounts his own impressive career.

Guy Badeaux will be the guest of Guy Berthiaume, Librarian and Archivist of Canada, as part of the Library and Archives Canada Signatures Series, which presents unique encounters with personalities who have donated their archives to the institution.

Bado has now been publishing cartoons in Ottawa’s French-language daily for 35 years. 
His work, combining art and journalism, shines a spotlight—sometimes scathing and cynical, at other times tender and moving—on the news. 
His drawings reflect both events that have seared themselves into the collective imagination and the little trials and human foibles of everyday life.

Reserve your place now for this interview with Bado on Tuesday, September 20 from 12:15 p.m. to
1:15 p.m., in the Library and Archives Canada premises at 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa.

Please reserve by e-mail at

Documents from Bado’s archives will be on display for the occasion.
