Cornwall - Aug. 22, 2011 - The following is a statement issued by Mr. Layton's family, earlier this morning:

We deeply regret to inform you that The Honourable Jack Layton, leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada, passed away at 4:45 am today, Monday August 22. He passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family and loved ones. Details of Mr. Layton’s funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.

Jack Layton was 61 years old.

On July 25, 2011, Layton announced that he was stepping down as NDP Leader to fight a new cancer. Layton had hoped to return to his duties in the fall. "I will therefore be taking a temporary leave of absence as Leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada. I’m going to fight this cancer now, so I can be back to fight for families when Parliament resumes," said Layton in July.
