A Free Press

On this Fourth of July I’m posting again the keynote speech I gave in Ottawa at the Canadian Committee for World Press Freedom luncheon last May.

Nowadays I hear many comments like “You must be having a great time with all this material” or “Cartoonists must be in heaven with the Trump presidency”.  The feelings I have though are not ones of fun or excitement.  I only feel a sense of urgency and concern for my country and the ideals I value.

While I’m under the weather I’ll post this from a few weeks ago, since it expresses my feeling where this country is going.  Really hope I’m wrong.

And now, the Trump Presidency.  How did we get here?08152016howdidwegethere
