    I’m no longer sure what the Nobel Peace Prize is for any more. Barack Obama got it for not being George W Bush. I think the EU got it on the grounds that if you’re bankrupt you can’t afford to go to war any more. Not that it matters – Kate’s pregnant and that means there will be no more news about anything but Tadpole Windsor for the next six months.
    Happy new year everyone…

    My tradition of year-in-rewiew has to main inspirations; JibJab’s reviews of the ending year on YouTube (go check it out!) and Radio-Canada’s Bye-Bye’s, a comedic review of the year that airs (almost) every new year’s eve at eleven PM, counting down the last hour until midnight. The Maritimes being one tome zone to the east, I’ve always seen it start at midnight.

    Many of those things I’ve made fun of were more present up here in the Great White North, so let me explain;
    The Husky with the sign is an allusion to the long-needed Idle No More movement among Canadian First Nations.
    It may be only a game, but for some reason, spending one year in Canada without anyone in the family or workplace saying how miserably the Habs are doing those days, it’s like the flag without a maple leaf (or the Quebec flag without the flowers, I don’t want to make anyone jealous). I always thought the NHL logo looks like it’s just begging to be turned into a padlock!
    Now as I recalled, there were a Panda in the student protest (you can catch a tiny glimpse of it in the frame, right of Buzz), but there were no dogs nor cats. Still, I had that frame in my mind, complete with red-square-covered Buzz, PO’ed Beebee and Mimi since April! Even if I had drawn for 100 years, I couldn’t make a more accurate portrait of Montreal, complete with lighthouse-like spot atop Place Ville Marie, cross on Mount-Royal and ever-present protesters (Remember! that’s North America’s France, says it all!)
    This was also England’s year, in a way, and you always invite your buddies at a new year’s party, don’t you? Hence the presence of Jones and Snow.
    I didn’t write it in the cartoon, but to make sure Sooky remembers the name of “that old boat”, someone should tell him they’ll play the Celine Dion song if he doesn’t. He’ll either remember the name or run away screaming. The nutter who sent body parts in the mail is Rocco Magnotta, a former reality show wannabe-contestant who did that to become famous. I couldn’t name him in the cartoon, because notoriety is all those freaks want, let’s not give them fuel!
    Now, for the frame about the deceased people…not much to draw except something for Whitney Houston and Neil Armstrong (I was tempted to draw a seperate candle for the career of Lance Armstrong). Not that many famous people passed away this year, more illustrous unknowns, people nobody knew, who just happened to be at the wrong spot at the wrong time in stories that made the news, lie Kate’s nurse, Treyvon Martin, that guy on election night in Montreal, the girl from New Delhi. May they all rest in peace.

    Nice little cartoon, how ARE things in Montreal? (I haven’t been there in several years; although I visited Quebec city and Ile D’Orleans the last 2 years in a row)< I am an Ont-born Canadien Francais ;) -If the political situation would ever resolve itself, I might return to my roots & retire in Quebec

    Btw, I don’t give a crap what the so-called “Royal Family” (Or as I call them, “The World’s richest Welfare Cheats”) does, it’s time Canada had it’s OWN head of State, rather than paying a foreigner to be “Queen”. It’s time to become a Republic, so the rest of the world will take us seriously!
