BackBench Collection, The

by Graham Harrop


"BackBench" has appeared daily for almost twenty years in The Globe & Mail, both as a comic strip and as a panel cartoon. With his witty, irreverent humour, Graham Harrop has satirized most of Canada's major political figures. He has commented on government scandals, the cosy connection of politicians and pop idols, and the continuing battles between the feds and the provinces. He is noted for his humorous take on Leonard Cohen in his much publicized retreat to a California monastery aswell as Margaret Atwood and her "remote pen" for signing books.
