le bon jack

canada lost an inspirational leader on monday. i’m still a bit gobsmacked that jack layton, the man who said “we can look after each other better than we do today” and “don’t let them tell you it can’t be done” died of cancer.

for those of you who have not read his final letter to canadialand, please click here.

i was pretty upset about jack’s death, and on monday, i posted to facebook that “i wanted to live in [jack’s] canada.” i was reminded, by my awesome friend barb, that not only could we live in his canada, but “we must… we have no other choice.”

and she is right. if i want to live in the canada jack talked about, it’s on me to do all i can to make that happen.

political fire, ignited.
