Mr. Layton


c/o the Globe and Mail, Jack Layton and wife.  May 2011


Dear Mr. Layton,

Although I am not an NDP supporter I was always encouraged and proud of you and your ideals. You dedicated your life to fighting for the betterment of all and not just a few. Equity, compassion and humanity. That was what you stood for, that was what the young votes resonated with. You fought hard both professionally and personally. You made life proud. Mr. Layton, you were a great statesman and you are an inspiration.

Lots of love,

B.

RIP Jack Layton
