Best Political Cartoonist

Bruce MacKinnon

The renowned cartoonist has had a “wacky” year, with multiple election fun, and months of email response to an Obama cartoon which was misappropriated, altered and used as anti-Obama propaganda. “That proved to be the gift that kept on giving,” he says. Add to that an investigation by the police following a complaint registered by representatives of a local Islamic group over a cartoon he did relating to the “Toronto 18” terrorism case. There were no charges, but, according to MacKinnon, a human rights complaint by the same group is still outstanding. “And here I was starting to wonder if cartoons were still relevant.” The Chronicle-Herald
