Milczarek graduated from Ryerson University. Milczarek created some controversy for her comments during a debate about "ethical oil" and using the Athabasca oil sands over Saudi Arabia's oil. When discussing CTV's refusing to air an ad by Ethical Oil Institute (an oil sands advocacy group) describing women's rights in Saudi Arabia; Milczarek asked "Are we really more ethical than the Saudis?" Milczarek later tweeted she was referring to Canada supporting the Saudi government, although it was questioned if she was forced to make these comments based on CTV's parent company, Bell Canada, large volume of work building the Saudi's telephone infrastructure.  ( Wikipedia article )
