Jack Layton…fighting the good fight

Just my two cents…

All we can do is wait and see.  I voted for him.  I live in his riding.  I’m thinking and praying for you and your family Jack.




“Visitors to Ottawa asked about one thing and one thing only — Layton’s health.

It was raised over beers at the pub, discussed at dinner parties, dissected over lunch in the shadow of Parliament Hill, but never did it delve into the type of maliciousness that so often poisons the Ottawa gossip mill.

This was genuine concern over a man already battling prostate cancer, a man who didn’t look well, but a man who appeared unable to slow down.

But we didn’t write about it.

We didn’t know.

He was doing his job and doing it well and there are some private matters that need not be poked at.

The worry remained, however.

That’s what makes Monday’s news that a new cancer had infiltrated the 61-year-old’s frail body such a tragic personal story.

You somehow knew you might hear that news one day, but you dreaded it.”
