Jack Layton

from Jack Layton's farewell letter
History in the making. It's a sad day for Canada. As a young NDP'er I'm horribly saddened for the Party and incredibly moved by Layton's farewell letter. You can find it just about anywhere online at the moment. In commemoration here are some clips of Jack.

In seeing the incredible determination to relentlessly and stubbornly fight for what he believed in over his political career I'm reminded of words by JS Woodsworth, another figurehead leader cut short from the public scene, "Every [NDP] member ought to be able to give a reason for the faith that is in him." Thanks for living that faith Jack and constantly bringing to light the reasons why the optimistic faith and hope for a better Canada must always be maintained.
