Michael de Adder, wrote on tweeter
The highs and lows of cartooning. Today I was just let go from all newspapers in New Brunswick.
He then later went on to say “Technically I wasn’t fired. I was under contract not employed. “
I loved drawing cartoons for my home province. I’m a proud New Brunswicker. I will survive. I’m not a victim. I just finished a book, that will be out in September and I still freelance for some amazing newspapers. It’s a setback, not a deathblow.
In another tweet he said..
The hardest part in all of this,I have a mother with dimentia in NB who has a hard time remembering her family at times.But she knows her son draws cartoons. Part of her daily routine is to open the @TimesTranscript and see her son’s cartoon.A cartoon that won’t be there anymore.
