Another One Bites the Dust

The Victoria (British Columbia) Times-Colonist gave its editorial cartoonist, Adrian Raeside, the boot today.
"Sad news. After 36 years of drawing editorial cartoons for the Victoria Times Colonist, I was terminated on Friday, a victim of budget cuts. I will miss the many loyal TC readers I had over the years, but I’m not going to stop drawing, as there are too many important issues out there. The only change is I will now be buying wine that comes in a box. — Adrian"
Raeside is the only Canadian editorial cartoonist with a book on my bookshelf. (I do have one other book of Canadian editorial cartoons, bought at the same time as this one, but it's a compilation of several cartoonists' work about nuclear arms issues.) As you can perhaps see if you embiggen the image above, I bought it for considerably less than the $12.95 Canadian list price.

Blame NAFTA.
