Twitter. My handle is @globaltaster

+ 2 What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Waitress at the Blind Pig in Ottawa. While working there I was instructed to pull down my “costume” and hike up my skirt to show my legs. The manager of the restaurant was a pig and tried to take advantage of the female staff. I lasted about a week.

+3 Not including the outlets for which you write, what else do you read?
Esquire, Atlantic & Vanity Fair subscriptions.

+4 What’s your guilty indulgence?
Champagne and caviar whenever I can.

+5 Looking back, of which moment in your career are you most proud and why?
Writing speeches for Marc Lalonde, a federal cabinet minister. I was just a kid in my twenties, but with my words I helped bring in legislation to expand health care, old age security, anti-drug, pro-physical activity, interprovincial co-operation, seat belt legislation and even raise funds for Israel.
