Cartoon over the line

One thing for certain is that “free speech” will survive no matter what manic terrorists do

The cartoon in Jan. 14 Oak Bay News is a bit over the top and unnecessary, don’t you think ?

One thing for certain is that “free speech” will survive no matter what manic terrorists do and perhaps it would have been better for cartoonist  I. Rice to illustrate that certainty rather than belatedly jump on the Gallic bandwagon.  After all,  it is only a matter of weeks since we in Canada had our own wake-up call of what mindless fanaticism is capable of.

Maybe it is now time for those who can do more  and for those who wish to comment with crayons,  to dismount and settle for their more usual and better suited level of trivia.
