Welcome to the spring provincial election campaign. Blue boxes brim with glossy flyers, streets and cafés are alive with indifference, and every subway station has been staked out by partisan enthusiasts eager to explain how much gridlock costs. Polls reveal the Liberals and the Conservatives in a dead heat for first, with the NDP trailing in third place.
