The Wrecking Ball
Terry Mosher (Aislin)
The Wrecking Ball is a collection of Aislin’s recent favourite cartoons. All of the choice political material is here: Pauline Marois as Miley Cyrus, the Parti Québécois’s Charter of Quebec Values, student demonstrators wandering through Montreal’s deteriorating streets, corruption inquires and Montreal’s succession of mayors, the Harper Tories and the Canadian Senate debacle, the coronation of Justin Trudeau, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, the Habs and the Sochi Olympics. Whew!
AISLIN is the nom de plume that Terry Mosher has used for over forty years as the political cartoonist for The Gazette in Montreal. He is also President emeritus of the Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists and, in that capacity, he has recently served as a judge and observer at International cartoon events in Portugal, Turkey, China, Australia, and Cuba. Named an Officer of the Order of Canada in May 2003, Mosher is the winner of two National Newspaper Awards, and In May 2007 he received an honorary Doctor of Letters from McGill University. In 2012 he was inducted into the Canadian Cartoonists’ Hall of Fame as part of the 8th Annual Doug Wright Awards for Canadian Cartooning. www.aislin.com.
