This cartoon takes a stab at Canada’s economic imperialism and exploitation of the Global South through resource extraction and cheap labour. In this satirical portrayal the imperialist Canadian beaver tycoon dons a beaver felt hat representing the inherent cannibalism of the system. The beaver sits atop it’s lodge of extorted riches whilst gnawing on human bones indicating the direct human toll these vicious exploitative practices incur. A U.S. bald eagle soars overhead reminding us of who really commands the order. The landscape is flooded, revealing the climate crisis and Canada’s role in exacerbating ecological devastation globally and displacing populations at home and abroad in the name of the capital.
