I threw this one out to the for the little papers across Canada to run if they want it. It’s a revision of a cartoon I drew for budget day during the Chretien era which predated my syndication days:
It worked better as Chretien’s time in office was winding down, but I’d say given the enormous size of the federal surplus the cartoon could apply to Harper as well. I’ll be working on a brand new one for tomorrow’s Spec.

It’s experimental, a bit crude, but today’s cartoon is animated:
Graeme, I just discovered your blog. Hadn’t visited your site in a while. Your work makes me chortle more than that of most other editorial cartoonists. (Even the stuff I disagree with vehemently. It is possible to chortle loudly about a cartoon whose viewpoint you oppose?)
And your drawing style rocks. Love your Harper.
