Worth Reading - March 31, 2016

The Republican presidential primaries have sucked up a lot of attention. I must admit that I haven't paid a lot of attention to the competition to the Democrats, largely because I bought into the narrative that Clinton was the inevitable nominee. There is growing evidence that that isn't the case. In this article there is a clip from Morning Joe discussing why the perspective is tilted that way and whether or not Bernie is now favoured to win

Dale Smith wrote about the lost collegiality between politicians

The Toronto Star lays out some of the options for the Downtown Relief line

Columbus Ohio has opted to give out transit passes rather than build a new costly parking structure.
