Remembering The Honourable Jack Layton

Post Date: Tuesday, August 23, 2011
I was deeply saddened to hear about the death of The Honourable Jack Layton this morning.

Mr. Layton’s impact on the people and politics of our great nation is significant and lasting. His commitment to Canadians, whether as an activist, educator, or politician, was admirable and will surely be remembered. Such dedication to public service—to improving the lives of individuals and the quality of our communities and cities—must be celebrated as an example we can all emulate.

I join with many of my fellow Calgarians and Canadians in mourning this great loss for Canada. The Layton/Chow family have my most sincere wishes for comfort and peace in this difficult time.
