I didn't agree with Jack Layton on anything. He was left wing all the way. But he was a rare commodity in the political world. Jack was honest about his policies. He never dodged a question. You always knew where you stood with him. And his policies were never about "power". He believed. And you knew and trusted he was telling the truth. I could respect him. He campaigned for his party with prostate cancer with such bravery. And he successfully won the NDP the title of the Official opposition. This is a sad day. And he was one of those people that was just so damn likable despite your political differences and he was always civil. I'll try to get his obituary up quickly.The news just broke. RIP Jack.
