    the last year

    Canadian woman loses benefits over Facebook photo - Yahoo! News
    Nathalie Blanchard has been on leave from her job at IBM in Bromont, Quebec, for the last year.

    Can I say "the past year" in place of the last year?

    Can I say "the past year" in place of the last year? Yes you can. I would omit the last comma.
