In no particular order:

I could take the easy way out and say something like Hogarth, Gillray, Cruikshank, Daumier, and Leech, but I should stick closer to home. And since no Canadian political cartoonist has had much impact on the Canadian consciousness since Ben Wicks died, I'll go with a list of my favourite dead lefties:

1. Avrom Yanovsky
2. Laurence Hyde
3. Richard Taylor
4. JW Bengough
and for good luck
5. Walter Trier
