Wow, that was very fast. Well kudos to Jack for taking his party to official opposition status. May his family use the good times to charter the difficult times ahead.

Jack Layton's politics and tactics have enraged me at times, but strangely, I am actually quite saddened by this news.

RIP Jack.

He looked like he was near the end when he announced this cancer. It doesn't surprise me that he went this fast, but it's sad to hear about his passing.

More important is the fact he believed in it. "Sick" is a little strong, "idealistic" would be more reasonable.

I was just looking at his profile on Wikipedia and it has his religion listed as Christian, which I find very surprising. I thought for sure it was going to say the other thing... I hope it's true.

The other "thing"? Jew? Muzzie? Buddhist? Hindu? What the **** does it matter?

I'm not sure why "Christian" would be surprising, as I always thought a Christian has concern for his fellow man!

You've never noticed that Christians tend to be conservative and atheists more liberal or left?

Sad for your passing, Jack.

(start another thread, if those who would disparage him aren't lacking decency)

Liberals are overwhelmingly Christian as well as Jewish.

Opinions need to be based on reality to be valid.

Actually, Petros, I have a bit of a philosophy regarding debate. With debate we are trying to END UP with the right answers, but it can start anywhere. It's like we are all trying to get to the North Pole while some of us may start out at the SOUTH pole, but the smart ones don't stop there. Savvy?

Concern for your fellow man sure, but what about the other stuff like abortion, gay marriage, and Palestine?

Generally speaking of course.

I wasn't aware that the N.D.P. was against abortion or gay marriage.

It is a sad day for Canada that Jack is gone.

It is even sadder that religion had to be dragged into this thread. It has no place in politics.

Your mom was right to have an abortion. Too bad it lived to grow up and get married to a gay Palestinian. Maybe that is a good thing. It won't breed.
