All of us at ACFO were saddened to hear of the passing of Jack Layton.
Jack Layton will be remembered as a champion for social justice as well as a man of impeccable integrity. He was the happy warrior of Canadian politics who never backed down from a fight. As evidenced in his battle with cancer, he fought every fight with dignity and courage. He brought new meaning to the term “Statesman” in Canadian politics.
A condolence letter has been sent to the friends and family of Jack Layton, offering our deepest sympathies.
Jack Layton is a great example of leadership for future generations.
He may be gone, but he is not forgotten. Canadians should strive to live their lives the way Mr. Layton did: seeing the good in everyone and working to be the best we can be. His final words will live on in all of us.
