Share with a friend

Love the Gazette’s Terry Mosher, Aislin. An excellent cartoonist. For today’s lesson we have a selection of the cartoonist’s favourite work in honour of the Olympics, scheduled to start this Thursday, February 6th in Sochi, Ruusia.

I don’t think any Montrealer can ever forget this one:

Good Ol’ Mel – that’s Mel Lastman, previously outspoken mayor of The Big Onion, said something about cannibals or cannibalism and, knowing Toronto, may have even added something about cannabis. Rob Ford cries out for some kind of attack or put down or something here but I’ll pass for now, but reserve the right to revisit that fat fuck at some later point in time.

NOT TO MENTION THE SOCCER (FOOTBALL) SILVER OUR WOMEN LEFT LONDON WITH POST THE 2012 SUMMER GAMES.

Remember Canada is out to defend the record fourteen (14) gold medals we won in the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010. No country has ever won more gold medals in any Winter Games than Canada did in Vancouver. We dominated the ice – hockey, curling, and short-track speed-skating. We did as well on the slopes – skiing and boarding – as we had ever done at any previous Winter Olympics. Good luck Canada and the rest of the athletes competing in Sochi, Russia, beginning on Thursday.

Peace. Really and truly one hundred percent required.
