You may not have agreed with his politics... but you cannot deny that he was a great leader. His letter to all Canadians is a testament that he was here to make a difference. To spend his final hours writing a letter to all of us and to those who are suffering from cancer with a message to never give up hope even though his own fight has ended.
"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." The Honourable Jack Layton, leader of the New Democrat Party of Canada, and Official Leader of the Opposition.
