Today is a sad day for all Canadians and for the world. One of the hardest working men in Canada has lost his battle to cancer.
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.
~ Jack Layton
In an Open Letter to Canadians Jack left us with his final words. A call to stay positive and to continue fighting to make Canada, and the world a better place. It is something that everyone, not just his supporters, should read and take to heart. Jack was a fighter for all. He fought for the poor and disadvantage. He fought for seniors. He fought for education. He fought to make the world a better place.
As I have read in many place already today, this is a sentiment I must echo...he was the best Prime Minister we never had.
Le Bon Jack...you will be greatly missed.
