Over the decades Canadian Prime Ministers have never escaped the brush of the editorial cartoonist. This series of 10 illustrations shows how Prime Ministers, stretching back to John Diefenbaker, have been depicted in the context of how they, or their governments, have related to Inuit and Arctic issues. Most have articulated a northern vision. There have been recurring themes, such as Arctic Sovereignty. During the years when Canada engaged in rounds of Constitutional discussions (Meech Lake and Charlottetown), Inuit figured prominently. The series also underlines the progress made from a time when Nunavut did not exist, to a time when Inuksuit, and soapstone carvings are now familiar parts of the Canadian fabric.
