Missing Men Like Jack
In these days of total buffoons like the shaggy-haired, arrogant, loud-mouthed, egomaniacal twit running for President south of Canada’s border, let us remember those politicians who made us proud.
We shouldn’t forget that there are some who are wise, insightful, poised and inspiring. Jack Layton was one of those. When Jack lost his life, Toronto lost a great politician, a fine man, and a little of it’s hope and optimism for a brighter future.
Thankfully, with the good ones, there is usually a lasting legacy of inspiration, action or both that remains. Here is a glimpse into the legacy that Jack left for Toronto.
We miss you, Jack. Especially now.
