A Moment in History

On The Hill
We were on our way to Ottawa when we heard that Jack Layton died.

I won't pretend to know much about the man, but I admired his style. In a dirty profession, he seemed by a bit cleaner than his opposition. Also, NDP was the first party I supported. I haven't supported them all the time since that first election when I exercised my right to vote, but often enough. I have a sentimental attachment to the man who brought the party to the position of Loyal Opposition.

My condolences to Jack's family and friends... and even his enemies. He will be missed.
