My condolences go out to his loved ones and his political friends and allies. Canada, IMO, has lost one of the last men of ethics that aspire to the grunt and grind of the nasty 'pit' of politics. The only one whose workers took time to address me on this critical drug policy which is killing Canadians daily. I mourn for all of our loss. Canada will be less without this man. Although he was a bit too left of center for me in some policies, I always respected his commitment and honesty. That is something I couldn't say for many other politicians today. Isn't it time for the sane in Canada to support more men like him no matter what political stripe? Thank you Jack Layton, you are a great man!
