am deeply saddened by the news of Jack Layton's passing. Despite the fact we all knew the seriousness of his illness the news came as a personal shock.


My heart goes out to Jack Laytonís family, his colleagues in Parliament, members of the New Democratic Party and all the people he inspired throughout his accomplished career.


He was both a brilliant leader and a compassionate person. Jack Laytonís compelling optimism and strength of character will be missed.
