Last month I drew a cartoon which compared ex-MP Stan Keyes’ appointment as President of the Canadian Payday Loan Association to Muhummad Yunnus, Nobel Peace Prize winner who pioneered microcredit loans to the world’s most poverty stricken. A comment was left yesterday under my blog entry concerning the cartoon from someone going by the name… yep… Stan Keyes. I don’t know if it is in fact from the ex Liberal Martinite cabinet minister, but it sure sounds like him:
Graeme MacKay does not know me. He has never taken the time to speak with me. He has broken the first rule of journalism and made assumptions. He has not done his homework on the Canadian Payday Loan Association. Graeme MacKay passes judgement, attacks then runs and hides. Pretty shameful.
I know he was pretty p-o’d after the cartoon ran. Complaints by Keyes were fired off to my boss, and he was offered the opportunity to defend Payday loans through an Spectator Op-Ed piece which has yet to be delivered and printed. Looking forward to reading it, Mr. Keyes!
In other news, local campaign scrutiny activist Joanna Chapman writes in that she’s a fan of my cartoons (at the bottom of the entry.)
