Remembering Jack Layton, A Great Canadian

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

On Monday, August 22, 2011, Canada lost one of its best. Jack Layton, who led the NDP to its first ever status as the official Opposition, may have lost his battle with cancer, but he won our hearts through decades of passionate service for the Canadian people. It’s very easy to see how much people respected Jack. A simple word cloud of people’s online comments about him will suffice.

“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.”
