3 Baloney 1993

A satirical caricature of Brian Mulroney (former Prime Minister of Canada, denouncing his duplicity (on the right) .An Mulroney is also an American flag, on his jacket.

To the left is the building of the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa, with the American flag above it and the sign "For Sale!" in front of him.

The serial number of the caricature also begins with the prefix USA. The very cartoon currency is the Baluni - a component from Brian Mulroney.

For the Governor of the Bank of Canada on the cartoon signed I.M. Incompetent.

The caricature is made in the design of a series of Canadian dollars "Views of Canada" of the 1970s - the first half of the 1980s.

This is, in general, the most severe criticism by many Canadian politicians of the course of Brian Mulroney regarding the United States and the introduction of the G.S.T.

The failure of the Treaty of Michigan and the economic crisis that broke out in the beginning of 1990, deep and longest in the post-war history of Canada, reduced the popularity of Mulroney. The introduction from January 1, 1991 of the general federal tax on goods and services caused even greater criticism of progressive conservatives. In December 1992, Mulroney and the US and Mexican Presidents signed the Free Trade Agreement in North America (NAFTA), despite sharp criticism of the agreement in Canada. In February 1993, the popularity of Mulroney fell to a record low of 17%, and on February 24, 1993 Mulroney announced his resignation as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party and Prime Minister.

Essence - "Mulroney sold Canada to America!"

Dalton Kingsley Camp

Dalton Kingsley Camp, PC, OC (September 11, 1920 – March 18, 2002) was a Canadian journalist, politician, political strategist and commentator and supporter of the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. Despite having never been elected to a seat in the House of Commons, he was a prominent and influential politician and a popular commentator for decades. He is a central figure in Red Toryism.

A Red Tory is an adherent of a center-right or progressive-conservative political philosophy derived from the Tory tradition, predominantly in Canada, but also in the United Kingdom. This philosophy tends to favour communitarian social policies, while maintaining a degree of fiscal conservatism and a respect of social and political order. It is contrasted with "Blue Tory" or "High Tory". Some Red Tories view themselves as small c conservatives.

In Canada, Red Toryism is found in provincial and federal Conservative political parties. The history of Red Toryism marks differences in the development of the political cultures of Canada and the United States. Canadian conservatism and American conservatism have been different from each other in fundamental ways, including their stances on social issues and the role of government in society.
