I didn't believe this when I heard it. I had a real soft spot for MR. Layton, as he was one of few politicians, especially party leaders, that I think truly belied in what he was pushing. A very sad day, even though I'd be lying if I said I didn't expect it a bit after seeing him on the news a month ago, part me was hoping Fighting Jack could fight this one as well, he will be missed.
Agreed, He'll be missed. I may not like his party's politics, but I think he was the classiest one of the current crop of party leaders. I just got back from a vacation out-of-country and am catching up on news. Crap this sucks.

I didn't vote for him but I respected his sincerity and honestness, not to mention the last words he left with us. Very enduring. The NDP did an amazing job this past election. The tributes for him are well deserved.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
