LETTER: Cartoon dig uncompassionate

Maybe the cartoonist should think about what people had to endure as they fled their homes.

I would like to respond to the cartoon published on May 11. Although it seems the artist portrays the cartoon as sincere for Fort McMurray, I couldn’t help but notice the dig at the carbon footprint left by the vehicles leaving a burning city and people fearing for their lives.

Maybe the cartoonist should think about what people had to endure as they fled their homes,to leave everything behind. I hope he never has to face that reality.

To me it was just in poor taste.

Maybe his next cartoon could be the backed up traffic in and out of Victoria everyday. How much of a carbon footprint is being produced there?
