Back in the mists of time, or rather, Time, there used to be a regular December feature called "Man of the Year."
That was amended to "Person of the Year" in the 28th year of Progressive Conservative rule here in Alberta, and no doubt many in that party are still upset by the change, being symptomatic, as it were, of that other kind of PC they so love to disparage.
Other news organizations that want to do the same thing but not admit that it was someone else’s idea often use the term "Newsmaker of the Year."
Call it what you will, I was thinking in preparation for the arrival of 2015 that Alberta's news-making person of the year in 2014 is undoubtedly a woman. The only question is, which one?
