The NHL found someone to keep the Coyotes in Glendale, and the mayor of Quebec City Régis Labeaume wasn’t happy about that news, inspiring this cartoon.

Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell and county Elections Director Karen Osborne are the latest to suggest a ballot measure to overturn Glendale’s sales-tax hike should go forward.

The issue is closely watched because proceeds from the tax will help Glendale pay for a 20-year, $324 million lease agreement that could keep the Coyotes in Glendale.

The anti-sales tax group, known as Save Glendale Now, aims to put the city’s 0.7 percent sales-increase, and future hikes, on the November ballot.
