“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” – Jack Layton, 1950-2011.
On Monday Canada lost an amazing politician who believed in a new vision for Canada, who was passionate about what he believed in and a person who wanted to change the world. NDP Opposition leader, Jack Layton, succumbed to his battle with cancer. Before his death, he penned a goodbye letter to the Canadian public and it is very touching.
Godspeed, Mr. Layton. You will be missed.
