No editorial cartoons in Postmedia Opinion pages

 From Graeme Mackay's Facebook page.

Four of today's big Canadian city papers (the Calgary Herald, the Montreal Gazette, the Ottawa Citizen, and the Regina Leader Post) are running stock photos in the traditional spot meant for editorial cartoons on their Opinion pages. 

It's not due to a lack of satire available for them to run, it's budget cuts (saving papers $15-20 running freelance cartoons), and editors ignoring the fact that editorial cartoons are often the first thing readers look for in their newspapers. 

Let these Postmedia papers know this is an unacceptable trend.
