Overview

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!

Chantal Hébert

In the fall of 2007, Toronto Star columnist Chantal Hébert, came from Montreal thinking about new politics in Quebec from the perspective of one who spent a career writing about sovereignty: "What if you spent the best part of your life living next to a mountain only to wake up one morning to find it gone?" She is a guest columnist for L'Actualité and a weekly participant on the political panel "At Issue" on CBC's The National as well as Radio-Canada's "Les Coulisses du pouvoir." She has served as parliamentary bureau chief for Le Devoir and La Presse. She knows that to understand Canada we must also know the story of Quebec. No one tells that story more coherently than Hébert.

Reviews

"Rarely has political reality in Canada so consistently outdone fiction. Who needs editorial cartoonists, you might ask, at a time when actual politicians are so keen on doing all the work for them? Look to this collection for the answer. It will make you wonder whether to laugh or cry at the times we live in. It will also almost make it worthwhile to have endured the past three years." -- Chantal Hébert
