If you caught any of the Canadian news today you know that NDP leader Jack Layton died after a long battle with cancer (1950-2011).
He was one of the few politicians who everyone truly liked both a politically and personally.
You stood still and listened to everything he had to say. And you felt he truly stood for all of Canada.
So many of us have heard on the news or read online the letter he wrote just a few days ago, urging Canadians to keep the faith if they too were battling cancer, as well as a general thank you to the Canadian public.
