‘You can’t … look away’: Halifax cartoonist on his image of Lady Justice with a hand over her mouth

Kavanaugh Cartoon 20180930

Bruce MacKinnon’s cartoon for the Chronicle Herald features Lady Justice being pinned down and smothered. He was inspired by Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. “The cartoon had an impact. And that’s all you can hope for as a cartoonist,” MacKinnon said.
