A Picture Worth More Than Words

cartoon-ottawa-shooting-10222014

This is an editorial “cartoon” from  cartoonist Bruce MacKinnon , done for Halifax’s The Chronicle Herald earlier today. I felt this needed to be seen as widely as possible. For those unfamiliar with the war memorial in Ottawa, the soldiers depicted on the memorial are reaching down to Corporal Nathan Cirillo, with one of the statue’s soldiers kneeling by him as he died. Corporal Cirillo was the young soldier from Hamilton’s Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders who was so coldly and cowardly murdered on Wednesday.
