In 2016, the Women’s Executive Network named Tasha one of Canada’s “Top 100 Most Powerful Women”, for her work in radio, print, and television. An accomplished author, in 2005 Tasha co-wrote the bestseller, Rescuing Canada’s Right: Blueprint for a Conservative Revolution. She has contributed chapters on tax policy and justice to two other books, How To Cut Public Spending (and still win an election), and The Harper Factor: Assessing a Prime Minister’s Policy Legacy.
Tasha became passionate about politics and current affairs at an early age. She joined the former Progressive Conservative Party at the age of 14, and served as national President of the PC Youth Federation in her 20’s. She worked in Ottawa for cabinet ministers Barbara MacDougall and Bernard Valcourt, in Toronto for Ontario Attorney General Charles Harnick, and in Montreal for tax and litigation firm Spiegel Sohmer.
In 1998, Tasha left active politics and her legal career for journalism with CBC Newsworld, and then the Law Times and CPAC.
