Well, I'm afraid I don't know half the names on this list, but I will say
that Alison Outhit would be a great choice (especially since she can't
seem to find a use for that expensive law degree). Laura certainly has
the artistic abilities but I know little of her journalistic talents.
The other Allison strikes me as too shy, but I don't know her so I say
this with a grain of salt.
In fact I'd add Anna Dirksen from Street Cents and Mike Clattenburg's co-
host on That Damn Cable Show (sorry, it's been a few years and her name
escapes me) to the list.

Whoa! I think you're jumping to a big conclusion there. It's unfortunate
that there were no women on Mr. Catano's list but I don't think he
deliberately discriminated. Perhaps he was drawing from a group that is
unfortunately skewed to the male side but that's not his fault. I don't
deny that these artificial barriers exist but I don't think that one was
being raised here.
