    I did not know the history of this man. But by his words I can tell he was a great man indeed. Thanks for sharing this.

    Heyo Cyndi. Is this for Gwen and Andrea's contest? Are we allowed to use any rhyme scheme? I am going to double-check rules. Super dedication to Jack Layton here! Yeah, I think it's great. I voted NDP even though I knew the NeoCons had the game in the bag by splitting the Liberal/New Demo vote....playing the Lib/Demo voters against each other. I was gutted when Layton passed away so quickly. Jack Layton WAS the NDP -he was the real thing who cannot be replaced. His family values were too strong. R.I.P. Jack

    I'm an NDP girl. Jack definitely WAS the NDP! And I wept when he died. His approach to politics changed my VIEW of politics, and when others got nasty, bared their fangs, he took the higher road. He kept it about the issues. I believed in him. I'm still a NDP girl... but I wonder what will happen to the party
