A Tribute to Jack



I didn’t know Jack Layton personally. Like many Canadians–particularly Torontonians, I have met him a few times and and shook his hand at public appearances.

His legacy for the readers of First Reference Talks is significant. He was a leader. He fought for the rights of working people and spoke up on difficult human rights issues in our community. He faced, head-on, challenges that business and organizational leaders face on a daily basis. He was a fighter and leaders everywhere will do well to follow his example.

Jack  led his party to a phenomenal feat in Canadian politics. Sadly he won’t be with us to savour the taste of this record-breaking success. He was one of my heroes and I am just too sad to write about ordinary things today.

Please return to First Reference Talks tomorrow when life returns to normal.
