Theresa Lubowitz was born in Moose Factory, Ontario and spent her early years in the northern Ontario community of Moosonee. Her family eventually settled north of Toronto where she was educated by highly skilled teachers whose lessons still impact her today.
She went on to post-secondary education at the University of Ottawa, a school she selected in part because of its proximity to Parliament Hill and the political culture of its city. At the University of Ottawa, like Alex Trebek before her, she studied philosophy from the department’s gifted faculty.
Theresa’s time in Ottawa deepened her relationship with Canadian politics and reignited her interest in Canadian history. She has since worked in Canadian party politics and in government in the province of Ontario.
Theresa’s interests in Canadian culture, politics, and sport is deep and varied. This website is the product of that interest and acts as an avenue to explore her pride in the uniquely Canadian approach her fellow citizens bring to each of these pursuits.
In the meantime, she awaits the day Trebek retires and the Jeopardy team looks to the alumni and alumnae of the University of Ottawa’s Philosophy department to step up and take his place.
