Today’s cartoon is local, pertaining to the appointment of the retiring bishop of the local Anglican diocese. He’s well known for his huge flag collection and his knowledge of badges, seals, and coats of arms. Ralph Spence is Canada’s leading Vexillologist, and the Governor-General even bestowed upon him the title Heralds Extraordinary last year. Today’s cartoon is a bit of a roast. I don’t know the man personally but given the fact that I’m a fair-weather parishoner of the Anglican Church I can poke fun at my Anglican authority figures.
