Jack Layton passes at 61

NDP leader Jack Layton passed away early this morning from an unidentified cancer.

Jack was definitely the most enthusiastic and charismatic political leader that Canada has seen in a very long time. My condolences go out to his family, friends and supporters.

Jack wrote a letter to the public in the event of his passing. You can read it in its entirety here.
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
