Did anyone even get this cartoon? I sense it was a classic head scratcher combining pop culture and news from the recent Auditor-General's report.
But at least give me some credit for trying to illustrate the eye opening news this week that $18 billion is still owed to the government by people and businesses whom I suppose don't feel like paying what they owe. For the vast majority of people who casually monitor the national news that startling aspect of Ms. Fraser's report was all but lost to the repeat of news that the old Liberal government oversaw and hid the costs of gun registry $1 billion boondoggle.
For those few who did catch the news of how much money is being evaded from the national treasury, I should've taken into account of how many of those folks would even know who Dog the Bounty Hunter is. Several I heard from had no clue.
On the other hand, how many fans of the A&E show "Dog the Bounty Hunter" had any knowledge of the $18 billion news story? I suspect only a few.
So, there it is, the creation of a dud cartoon. But in my world, the cartoon makes perfect sense.
