Francis, Diane

Maclean’s Magazine columnist, Financial Post editor and professional media cheerleader-of-choice whenever a right-wing government does something cruel or stupidly ideological enough to require media justification. Francis’ basic line is always the same: You aren’t being nearly cruel and stupid enough to inspire investor confidence. If she ends up as Stockwell Day’s Ontario Girl Friday, as some are predicting she will, this dictionary predicts they’ll become Canada’s very own cross-gendered Laurel and Hardy within a matter of months, and will be divorced within a year.
