IZZY McQUEEN has a lot more time on her hands these days.
Inundated with thousands of letters from Canadian children every year, Santa entrusts Canada Post and helpers like Izzy with the task of responding to those requests, allowing him plenty of time to focus on supervising elves and shoveling up the presents left by generous reindeer.
That means in recent years she has undoubtedly been responding to the children of the children to whom she wrote when she first took on the task in 1985.
The foul beast that is 2020, unfortunately, had other plans.
