Although I wasn’t super politically involved, I really did like Jack Layton from what I knew of him. I think he was honestly a good guy, who passionately tried to give Canadians something better. Even his opponents liked him (or maybe that was just for public face).
It’s a real shame… just when he was gaining some ground too. “You were our hope, Jack” someone wrote, and I agree with them.
May Canada do well without you… though needless to say, you will be dearly missed by many.
