In the weekly address No. 460, broadcast on Saturday, President Rafael Correa once again referred to cartoonist Xavier Bonilla, known as Bonil. In the view of the president, the cartoonist is an “ineffable” government opponent.
The incident has taken place by a cartoon in which Bonil speaks of the white elephants of the correst administration, which are: the building of the Unasur, Yachay University, the Pacific Refinery and the Tena Airport.
The president said that Bonil published that cartoon on the day of the Summit of the CELAC so the presidents who were visiting Quito saw it, which made the country look bad.
