She has covered four provincial elections and four premiers - Bob Rae, Mike Harris, Ernie Eves and Dalton McGuinty. Prior to arriving at Queen's Park, she spent many years at Toronto City Hall and the school board trying, unsuccessfully, to use her laptop computer as a blunt instrument to inculcate the values of thrift and respect for taxpayers' money in councillors, trustees and bureaucrats.

She's worked for the Sun since it started as well as for The Guardian in London, England and the now defunct Toronto Telegram.
