Fare Ye Well, Jack

Yesterday, in Canada, we lost one of the good guys.

Jack Layton.

You will be missed.

Bon Voyage.

    He sounds like someone Americans could use. I’m sorry for your loss.


  2. Jack’s passing has affected Canadians from coast to coast, even those who aren’t NDP supporters. He had that ephemeral ‘common touch’ that made him likeable, genuine and believable.

    In an era of political cynicism and PR-scrubbed slick willies who read off an autocue, Jack always spoke like a man who was saying what he really believed, what he really felt, and how you could make it happen.

    Canadian politics will be all the poorer for losing Jack on the national stage. We’re all sorry he’s gone.
