As you are reading this, Paul Martin could already be prime minister of Canada, Arnold Schwarzenegger could be governor of California and Saddam Hussein either dead or captured by the Americans. On the other hand, what we do know is that you will find in this book “freedom fries,” “roadmaps to peace,” Miss World contestants but no weapons of mass destruction. From the ludicrous claims of Clonaid to the outcry over same-sex weddings, from the excitement of both the PC and Liberal leadership races (we’re only kidding!) to the sober pronouncements of Mel Lastman (there we go again!), PORTFOOLIO 19 offers you Canada’s best editorial cartoonists’ take on an eventful year.
