RIP Jack Layton

My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. 
So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. 
-- Jack Layton (1950 - 2011)

Today, Canada has lost a truly great and remarkable soul in the passing of the Honourable Jack Layton. 
I had the privilege of photographing his optimistic smile during a number of his campaigns in Northern Ontario

  1. Amen! What a lovely guy. I cried (on the bus) when I was reading the letter he wrote.
