RIP Jack Layton!!

Today Canada lost a great political leader. jack Layton was the leader of the NDP party. A party I was going to vote for in the upcoming election. He previously fought and won his battle with pancreatic cancer. About 4 weeks ago he announced he would be temporarily stepping down as party leader to fight a new battle of cancer which he didn’t disclose the type of cancer it was. Today I turned on the news to hear that he has lost his battle with this new cancer.

He is survived by his wife Olivia Chow whom he never shyed away from showing that he adored this woman. I am sure this is a very hard time for her.

RIP Jack Layton

1950-2011
