2010 Cartooning and Photography Winners

Brian Gable of The Globe and Mail is back again with his offbeat cartoons of high profile news events. Among his submissions, there’s a mother admonishing her children to “prorogue it.” There’s another of two children wondering where to put the batteries in a book. The royal wedding will also be subject to austerity and cutbacks. Torontonians arrive in Calgary as “boat people” fleeing the Rob Ford era as mayor; and Peter McKay declines to resign because the money’s too good. Gable has been nominated for an 11th year and has won this award five times.
