Ms. Communicate has been an informal advice giver for most of her life. Beginning in high school, she would regularly advise friends about life and love via incessant note-passing during class when she should have been paying attention to subjunctive clauses. Known as "sister C" and "aunt C" to her friends, she tries to be sensible, non-judgmental, realistic, funny and, where relevant, snarky. She justifies her time reading other advice columnists as "research" and considers it time well spent. Ms. Communicate will answer all letters in her weekly online column on rabble.ca and can occasionally provide confidential personalized responses if you ask her nicely.
