I was compelled to illustrate an editorial cartoon depicting my frustration with the happy go lucky taser gun slinging RCMP that caused the unnecessary loss of life, a mother who will now out live her only son and the apparent arrogant negligence by YVR Security.
I decided on a memorial YVR monument theme as international visitors entered the airport. I chose Michaelangelo's Piety grieving sculpture for Mrs. Dziekanski and lost son. While depicting the RCMP in a "Charlie Angels" taser drawn pose in behind overlooking the fallen Robert Dziekanski. The sculpture would not be complete without including an empty YVR security chair with turned-off camera.
I tried in vain to have any of our local papers from the Vancouver Sun, Province, Georgia Strait and North Shore News to publish my editorial cartoon. The general consensus from these papers is that my illustration of such a tragic event is to risky! (chicken shits)
(I also wonder how this is playing out in the minds of future 2010 foreign Olympians/countries coming to our Olympic Winter Games.)

Someone threw this out on Friday, and all it needed
was a few missing wood-screws, and some wax.
It works fine, and I'm using it right now.
