Legendary Gazette Cartoonist Terry Mosher Hits New High with Quebec Premier Mariois Wrecking Ball Cartoon!

aislin marioisCFN –   Singers have their one special hit; authors their books, but legendary Canadian political cartoonist Terry Mosher, better known as Aislin, has hit a new high note in his long and historic career with his new cartoon depicting the Quebec Premier spoofing the Miley Cyrus song Wrecking Ball!

The long time Montreal Gazette writer responded to my query earlier this afternoon before his trip to Toronto.

I hadn’t actually seen the Miley Cyrus video until watching the CBC news with Wendy Mesley last night. With the yellow hair, I immediately mentioned to my wife that it could be Pauline Marois on a wrecking ball – with a few extra pounds. of course.. But surely someone has already done that, I thought?

However, after checking a number of websites, I realized that the idea was my own. I drew the cartoon immediately last night in order that The Gazette could get it up on its site ASAP this morning. I knew I had something special as I was drawing it.

It wasn’t the first time that Mr. Mosher has spoofed the Quebec Premier….and probably won’t be the last.   His work can be seen in the Montreal Gazette and other fine periodicals.

And now for your viewing pleasure, Wrecking Ball!

I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should’ve let you win”

When France acknowledged that multiculturalism was a failure in Feb. 2011 and echoed the opinions of other European countries, such as Germany and Great Britain it was cited that the nation needed to be protected from extremism. This followed the passage into law by the National Assembly of France on July 13, 2010 of the banning of wearing of face-covering headgear in public except under special circumstances. I understand Quebec’s stance and agreement with a growing number European countries whose experience puts them years ahead of our own. The problem is that the separatist provincial government instead of protection the… Read more »

The illustration of Pauline Marois ( with the yellow hair) is quite possibly the most flattering representation that I have seen of this woman ! Bravo Mr. Mosher !

And yes, this is apparently what is being whispered within the “bilingual” metropolitan city of Montreal but… Is this really the true sentiment of the hard core French powers that be in many of the boroughs who are “the face face” of the PQ base? The thousands that take to the streets on in a sea of blue and white on St Jean… Read more »
