Canada suffered a loss today.
Jack Layton, the leader of The New Democratic Party passed away from cancer. He was a wonderfully charismatic leader who was adamantly focused on the greater good. Whether you think the NDP should be in charge or not, there's no denying that Layton contributed to Canadian politics in a major way.
When he learned of his treatment's failure, he wrote a letter and gave it to his partner to be released upon his death.
It's truly inspirational and a testament to the kind of man he was.
Rest in peace, Mr. Layton.
