Political cartoon was slimy
Editor, The News:
The recent cartoon by Ingrid Rice is supposed to be an example of political satire.
To suggest that our prime minister received an international award by dishonest means is a despicable slant.
I personally find this offensive, a slimy way of indicating the political cartoonists’s political bent.
I remember a few years ago when Dave Barrett was in power. There was a $100 million overrun in one of his ministries. I put up a sign that read: Have a Barrett cocktail: B.C. on the rocks.
A newspaper published a picture of it. The result: I got a death threat.
Police said, if you value your life, take down the sign.
