Veteran Montreal-based political cartoonists Serge Chapleau and Aislin (Terry Mosher) received the 2015 Hyman Solomon Award for Excellence in Public Policy Journalism. The award was presented at the Public Policy Forum's 28th Annual Testimonial  Dinner & Awards in Toronto on April 16, 2015.

"We're very pleased to recognize two great political cartoonists and long-time friends, for their prolific body of work," says David Mitchell, the Forum's President & CEO. "They've provoked us with memorable images and thoughtful commentaries, helping us make sense of - and laugh at - the political and policy complexities of  our country and the world."
