A very sad day for us all. Whether you agree with his political views one could never deny he was passionate about them.
It was a shock to hear the news this morning. I really didn't think he'd ever be back in the public, but I thought he might pass in the fall or winter. But in only a few weeks....Very sad all round, I agree, even though like you, I'm not a fan of politicians in general.
So sorry for your loss - especially if he was a good one. They are hard to find these days - at least in the states.
I agree. Politics and politicians aren't my favourite things, but Layton provided energy and a view different from that of the ruling party, and that is essential in a democracy. In any case, anyone's death is a loss.
Ditto, what everyone has said. RIP, Jack, you will be very missed.
I will miss his energy in parliament. It's a sad time for Canadians.
