John Pakis Like to hear what all the Union bosses say about this news? Especially the CSN and FTQ presidents traditional supporters of the PQ. LOL Another flip flop for Madame M. du PQ. What is the mayor of Quebec city thinking " not good for his changes of getting an NHL team now ".

Denis Hache Lets all convert from Videotron to Bell (though I hate Bell) and this should help Videotron's expansion to rest of Canada. This should be interesting election especially for Terry!!!

Peter Furlotte Being the next successor to Pauline Marois. He joins at a bad time. Well depicted in this cartoon. Nice job.

Muriel Allan I see you did a Peladeau cartoon already, but while watching the news last night I was thinking of all the ways his tossing his hat in could be exploited...like his name on the ballot smudging and leaving your fingers all black...
March 10, 2014 at 11:14 am
Jack Ruttan Terry, do nuts write you, and claim you've stolen their ideas?
March 10, 2014 at 11:39 am
Muriel Allan @ Jack, nice drawing..self portrait?
March 10, 2014 at 11:41 am
Jack Ruttan No, a colleague in the Bangkok, Thailand comic club.
March 10, 2014 at 11:42 am
Muriel Allan My son draws, I find it a very interesting way to glean what's going on in his head.
March 10, 2014 at 11:44 am2
Terry Mosher Jack. I get a lot of email from people, most of it friendly and interested. There are occasional odd-balls of one variety or another. Such is life.
March 10, 2014 at 11:48 am2
Terry Mosher Yes, Brian. I remember. I had fun drawing those. It was quite different from my usual political diet.
March 10, 2014 at 11:49 am
Jack Ruttan That's great. I'm a long-time fan of yours from my student journo days. I'm not quite into the heavy political commentary, but do the occasional graphic comment, and it's nice when it gets passed around and appreciated. Canadian political cartooning rules! But it's been hard times lately, I think, as things get re-arranged.
March 10, 2014 at 11:50 am
Terry Mosher Yes. Montreal, Quebec City and Halifax are still great cartoon markets with a lot of public interest and enthusiasm. Hamilton is very good also because of Graeme MaKay at the Spec. Toronto market is so-so even though they have some great cartoonists, many of them not getting any work. Rest of the country is very bad – particularly the west – because of new cheap editors who have been given instructions to get rid of their cartoonists and pick up syndicated stuff at $30 a pop. Yes, sir! No, sir! Look at what happened to Roy Peterson, Vance Rodewalt, Dale Cummings and Cam. I'll be writing about all this eventually in a memoir.
March 10, 2014 at 12:00 pm5
Jack Ruttan In the 70s I was an aspiring cartoonist in Calgary. The editor at the Herald took me into a dusty room where there was a table piled high with syndicated cartoons on slick paper. Told me this was what I was competing against. That was depressing! Rodewalt and the guy who worked at the Herald (forget his name!) were nice, though.

March 10, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Muriel Allan When I bought him his first sketch book, (about age 7) it was just an idea for an outlet for him to express his feelings which were sometimes very intense (he has autism) I never dreamed he'd actually show such talent...so it has remained an outlet, but has developed into so much more.
March 10, 2014 at 12:08 pm1
Linda Kivenko @bill Grimshaw...love it. Can I borrow it??
March 10, 2014 at 1:03 pm
Jack Ruttan Muriel, kids like that can make good artists. One of them came to a comics workshop I gave in Thailand (source of that drawing), and he draws planes at the airport. Always paying attention to the model number and the number of windows.
March 10, 2014 at 1:42 pm
Muriel Allan What really started it for him, Jack was completely off the drawing scope...he'd lay for hours in his bed, satisfied that his books or farm figurines were lined up and just lay there (aimlessly to us) watching them...then he asked his father to buy him some cotton balls and stick on eyes, that's right about the time I bought him the first sketch book..and he glued the eyes on these balls in all different ways, then he lined them up on his dresser and he'd just lay there and look at them...I had concerns about him being reclusive, but I gave him a bit of leeway...and he drew his first comic strip. He cut his little sketch book in half and drew a series of drawings of these little cotton ball "personas" and it was a flip-animated strip. It was pretty awesome.
March 10, 2014 at 1:48 pm3
Jack Ruttan Wow. Shows you've gotta have patience with a little strangeness because it leads to interesting places.
March 10, 2014 at 1:49 pm2
Muriel Allan So while he was lying there seeming "aimless" to us, he was actually observing how light and shadow affected the "cotton people.

Terry Mosher is now friends with Pete Ledoux and 3 other people.
Here's an interesting bit of cartoon Canadiana for you in light of the upcoming election in Quebec that will be announced today (and the eventual possibility of yet another referendum). Back in 1998, when there was talk of just that – a possible 3d Quebec referendum – I drew this cartoon of an average person's reaction to that. (I've since added colour to the drawing.) The interesting thing is that, as far as I can determine, it was the first time that the word "shit" was used in an editorial page cartoon of a daily Canadian newspaper. That milestone was a really big deal for me (but then cartoonists have a different value scale than you do about what matters). And no reader's complained at that time – not one. For your interest, despite trying several times, I can't get away with using "shit" in a cartoon today. Oh, well, it's no secret that we all live in brittler times.

Marsha Mosher Over the years this issue has made me angry and fired up because I find it so ridiculous. Today, I am feeling very sad...I don't think it will happen. Then again maybe I am in denial. How could so many people make a decision, so radical, to rip us away from our country. It's difficult to wrap my mind around. I'm so proud to be a Canadian. <3

Allan Patrick I have no idea who you are Sir, but your flag is an insult to all who hold freedom and democracy important to our society We may all disagree with each other..but to compare Quebec society to a Nazi regime is obnoxious to the extreme level. I , for one will not accept that!
March 2, 2014 at 2:27 am2
Steve Romisher No disrespect to Terry and his page but to Allan P..in case you haven't noticed they are systematically trying to flush us out as did the nazis third reich to the jews..I am a jew btw.. back in the day..only they are killing quebec and our rights and not actually people..it is very comparable to that though..why else would so many of us be calling the PQ nazis? You should do alot more reading of posts and articles around fb and the internet and possibly discover alot more about the PQ's agenda and how the people really feel..they are comparable to muderers, rapists, molesters, tormentors and torturers because that is what they are doing to our rights and freedoms as Canadians..you don't have to accept that but it is the reality of what's going on here in Quebec for most Anglos, many Francos and much of the rest!
March 2, 2014 at 2:48 am
Allan Patrick With all due respect to Messrs. Daigle and Romisher, these kinds of debates should never be associated to the art and balanced journalism that Terry Mosher has portrayed to Montrealers for his entire career...please find another venue for your angst! This artist surely does not deserve this!
March 2, 2014 at 3:03 am1
Steve Romisher I have a great deal of respect for Terry and you are right Allan about this not being the proper venue for these types of posts but I felt the need to respond to your post of which I only see here..anyway moving on now ..I have nothing further to add anyhow..Good night Sir

Leonard Cohen maintained that Montreal should become a city state way back in the 1960s…
Alan Hustak so did Nick, with himself as Dodge.

Bob Bouchard Great Idea, if they don't do it quickly enough there isn't going to be any non francophones left in Montreal....... Remember. '76

Gary McLean It makes perfect sense - which is probably why it will never happen.
February 25, 2014 at 11:33 am2
Edith Dora Rey We can make it happen.

Denis Hache Montreal and West Island should separate to Ontario and let the rest of Quebec separate. Everyone would then be happy.

Roslyn Takeishi A great idea...the PQ have pretty much driven away all investment here...

Wayne Wood If Canada is divisible, then so is Quebec.

Richard Kechayan Let's make Montreal the great city it once was, prior to the 1976 upheavel.
I started working in '67... In those 10 short years, '67-'76, I was forced to change jobs 3 times... Each time because the company I worked for moved to Toronto... and I didn't want to!
How stupid can we Quebecer's be to not recognize that the PQ with its "much ado about nothing" policies are destroying our city and Province!
Let's put politician's in power to make our City-State... Montreal a reality!
BTW... I think Toronto should rename "Yonge Street"... "Rene Levesque Blvd" in honour of the man that most contributed to its rise to prominence!!!!

Denis Hache I really like your last paragraph (how true) Richard.
February 25, 2014 at 12:01 pm2
Carol Oss Next election...get involved...We can t criticize..if we don t do something about it...right? Start thinking about how?
February 25, 2014 at 12:09 pm2
Myna Lee Johnstone i say YES! if it becomes an ECOcity State
February 25, 2014 at 12:09 pm1
Chris Pappas I'd like to see the western part of Quebec lobbed off and made into either the 11th province or 4th territory.
February 25, 2014 at 12:24 pm2
Myna Lee Johnstone be careful here tho..or it could get very very expensive to live in Mtl

Peter Furlotte Long overdue. Let's do it for our kid's. Time to get rid of these potato farmers.

Marsha Mosher I see what what you're saying. I live in the Townships. Wouldn't that have negative affects on the rest of the province? Why do all the other "big" cities thrive? I'm asking because I don't know.

Pat Quintin It's the best solution to the neverendum but it will never happen unfortunately. On the surface it seems like a no-brainer for all parties involved. Montreal, as the only really ethnically diverse city in the province, is so unlike the rest of Quebec that it might as well be a city state unto itself. And for all those hard-line Pequistes, it solves all of their grievances with the stroke of a pen. Montreal gets lopped off and 99% of the language debate dies. There aren't two anglos to rub together anywhere else in the province so things like Bill 101 aren't an issue anywhere but Montreal.
However, if Montreal and all those anglos and visible minorities are removed from the equation, who will the PQ have left to blame for everything that goes wrong from then on? Losing Montreal as a convenient boogeyman/scapegoat would force them to look in the mirror for once and they wouldn't like what they saw. But from a more practical standpoint, Montreal is the economic engine of the province and represents a huge tax base. If it were to disappear the rest of Quebec would be much poorer. They'd become another New Brunswick or Newfoundland overnight. This is why the dream will never happen. No one even has the political will to propose it, let alone make it happen. And more's the pity because being in Quebec is what's killing Montreal.

Marsha Mosher I love Montreal. As I am getting older, I appreciate it more and more. Being an Anglophone, I feel very comfortable and relaxed when I visit. As anxious as I am to see the PQ out of the equation, no other elected party would entertain the possibility. Shame.....TY

Nick Cowen This is a very bad idea. The idea of a montreal city state came back to life as a way of leaving "quebec rule" if Quebec would ever be able to "break off" from the rest of Canada. The idea holds because 60%+ quebec funds come from montreal. The reason why it is a bad idea is because it stems from the notion of "whatever you can do I can do" which is not a solution. If quebec would ever leave Canada then in so, any city could leave quebec.The problem here is misrepresentation. It has to do with election ridings. Those ridings have been re-drawn years ago and it is because of ridings that you have situations where most of the people (popular vote) want one party but another party goes in power due to the fact they won more electoral districts. The problem arises when you have 100,000 people in one district and 25,000 people in another yet, they both have the same amount of weight (power) in office.

Joseph Gi Terry, I'm from Montreal but I currently live in Hamburg Germany, which has been a city-state ever since it joined the German empire. In Germany, Bremen, Hamburg and Berlin are all city-states, and if anyone has ever been to either Berlin or Hamburg, those are some really awesome thriving lively places to live. Also, they're even about the same size as Montreal Island, or that of the Montreal Metropolitan Area (whether Repentigny and St-Bruno would want to join is a different matter).
Montreal was always very different from Quebec anyway. I think it makes perfect sense, and plays exactly to the same logic as Quebec separatism: Montreal *is* in fact a distinct society. I don't recall any city that was so thoroughly bicultural, bilingual and multicultural. Did you know Montreal is the only area in the world outside Israel where there are municipalities where Jews are the majority? It's a unique city, and in spirit it already is a city-state. So I think it shoud go ahead and become a de jure city-state. It's a distinct society and it's a damn shame that some narrow-minded unilingual blow-in Premier would seek to destroy it.
