Many memorials show Canada’s love for late NDP leader

Jack Layton

Re: Layton’s dedication was inspiring (Comment, Aug. 26)

Thank you for your view on Jack Layton. As I listened to the many testimonials on the CBC I, too, thought, this is beyond politics. No opposition to lash out against his humane proposals.

Perhaps Jack’s legacy will wake us up to all we have lost: a Canada that cared for its own and for other countries. A Canada for peace, not war. A country for housing, not jails.

May you live on in our future, Jack.
