Andrea Horwath describes Layton as leader, mentor and friend
Today New Democrats lost a leader, a mentor and a friend. Jack Layton taught Canadians a new kind of politics. He inspired a generation of voters with his principles of compassion and fairness and equality. He set an example. He brought us together. He spoke to all Canadians, in the cities, in the North, in the country and on the coasts. My heart goes out to Olivia, Mike, Sarah and all of Jack’s family and friends. We’ll miss you Jack.
