Jack Layton, a passionate man

Jack Layton

Jack Layton - September 8, 2008

I was on the air when Jack Layton held his final press conference. As Layton walked to the mic, I said to my co-anchor, “he’s dying.” It reminded me of my own grandfather, a strong Albertan from the farm, the last time I saw him. He battled prostate cancer but finally succumbed to bone cancer.

As I watched Layton on screen, I had to turn away but his voice stayed with me. All was not well. I could barely continue reading the newscast afterward.

I believed Layton would be back and fight for Canadians. I wish he was able to do it in person, not in spirit.

My grandfather was lucky. He lived into his 90s. Jack Layton was 61.

“Canada is a great country, one of the hopes of the world. We can be a better one – a country of greater equality, justice, and opportunity.”  ~Jack Layton’s deathbed letter to Canadians

Few things are amusing me tonight, but a cardboard cutout of Gino Reda is one of them.

@loxyisme: I knew I wouldn’t be happy when the Canucks won. But I didn’t expect to be a boiling pot of pure rage. I’m so sad, I’m angry. #sangry
