Steve Nease: Tribute to a Local Artist
The Major Political Figures

Brian Mulroney, Jean Chretien, and Mike Harris - whom Nease still considers among his favourites to draw - feature a lot in this collection, as they were the driving forces behind Canada's major political shifts in the 1980s and 1990s.
"They were the biggest politicians of the day. And all of those characters, Mulroney and Harris, Harris for sure, were very polarizing. So that makes a cartoon fun. You would get a fair bit of reaction from readers. All of those characters were larger than life type people and they had interesting physical attributes as well - always easily recognizable."


It would seem that the public was quite disillusioned with the candidates before the 1993 federal election
