RIP Jack Layton

Nice touch, uncivil.

I'm pretty sure the interim leader will stay in the position until a leadership convention, probably in the new year, can be held.

Anyone with any class wouldn't turn this into a debate. Jack's appeal transcended party politics, even if his values didn't. He was a model of integrity and optimism, something sadly lacking - and now moreso - Canada's political scene for quite a while.

He will be missed and the country is poorer for his passing.

Well put Flying Lion,Layton most certainly was a class act amongst other politicians.

Bingo. The interim leader (Nycole Turmel) is pretty much guaranteed to be short-term leader until they reach a vote - after all, Layton not only asked her to be interim leader, he also requests that she stay in that position until the new leadership election in the new year.

Agreed & well said. I didnt always agree with his ideas or approach, but I think his passion & sincerity were infectious and heartfelt. My thoughts are with his family.
