This week we speak with Montreal-based Taras Grescoe.
Grescoe is an award-winning author and public transit advocate. His most recent book, Straphanger: Saving Our Cities and Ourselves from the Automobile was released by HarperCollins Canada in 2012. Straphanger won the Mavis Gallant Prize for Nonfiction and was listed by the Globe & Mail as one of the best books of the year.
Also, Premier Stephen McNeil shuffles the deck (cabinet-wise, at least), and Prime Minister Harper looks set to officially call the election. Too bad he doesn’t really have any candidates running out this way.
