Canada's Most Annoying Columnist Resurfaces.

Heather Mallick wishes she were Maureen Dowd. No sane woman wishes they were Maureen Dowd. Not even Maureen Dowd.

Her first column for on the first-ever hearings for a Supreme Court of Canada justice manages to combine liberal elite condescension with college-girl silliness.

One paragraph tells you everything you need to know about this woman:

You could always use my test of character, which is: "Do you miss Princess Diana?" I do. I still mourn her deeply and I don't really like anyone who doesn't, which is why I never ask that question, especially of my husband, who rolled over in bed when I came upstairs sobbing from watching CNN at 2 a.m. on Aug. 31, 1997, and said the equivalent of: "Yeah? And?"

The Globe and Mail's loss is actually their gain, if they ever stopped to think about it.
