Worth Reading – August 29, 2013

Marking Stephen Harper’s (CPC – Calgary Southwest, AB) tour of the Canadian Arctic the Edmonton Journal writes that the Prime Minister ultimately sees his legacy in Canada’s North. Not that it isn’t fraught with problems.

Macleans did a survey of Canada’s mayors and it turns out Mayor Susan Fennell of Brampton is the highest paid by their metric. 

Martin Regg Cohn in the Toronto Star criticizes the Ontario Municipal Board for overriding the democratically elected city councils of the province and likens the institution to the unaccountable Senate. 

From the Hill Times, a historian writes that Jack Layton’s death and the choice by so many Canadians to honour and memorialize his passing may have profound impacts upon our political culture in years to come. 

The Globe and Mail features an article on burnout among millennial women. Essentially this is a rehash of the problems women faced in the last few decades as they struggle to “have it all” and work to maintain a life-career balance.

From Daniel Kitts of TVO, a report says that Ontario doesnot invest enough in transportation. Did we need a report for that?
