Cathy Jarvis: Caribou consultations

The Alaska Highway News welcomes a new, local political cartoonist to our pages this week.

Cathy Jarvis has joined our op-ed roster to sketch some local funnies about all things politics and culture in the Peace Country and Canada.

Jarvis kicks off with cartoon about the ongoing consultations over caribou recovery efforts in the South Peace, which has fractured due to a lack of transparency about ongoing negotiations between the provincial and federal governments and area First Nations.

Caught in between are local government officials without much sense of what's going on and few details about how the regional economy will be impacted by new resource development restrictions and land protections; meanwhile, the rural-urban divide and debate over the value of ongoing wolf culls as viable tool to help with recovery efforts continues to rage.

Also on Jarvis' drawing board: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (whom she dubs "Mr. Potato Head) and his growing political troubles with China, the struggle for Canadian canola farmers, loser litterbugs, David Suzuki, and more.

Catch her work in the Alaska Highway News on stands every Thursday.

The Alaska Highway News is always seeking contributions from the community. Whether it's your club news, cartoons, letters, photos, if it has to do with the interests and concerns of the North Peace, we want to see it and share it.
