Best Cartoonist

Winner: Bruce MacKinnon

It’s a strange thing about Halifax’s daily newspapers: While how bad—or good—they are is a matter of debate, clearly neither is terribly well-respected on the national newscape. (To be fair, few local papers across Canada are; the Ottawa Citizen and Toronto’s Star are exceptions.) But Metro’s two daily cartoonist are widely regarded as among the country’s best. Bruce MacKinnon, who’s been poison-penning for the Herald forever, frequently wins the Canadian newspaper industry’s highest honours, so it’s not surprising he’s earned the SuperCity’s supreme award. As for the Daily News’ Theo Moudakis, who’s always trying to be better than MacKinnon, maybe next year will be his Best.

Runner-up: Theo Moudakis
