THOUGHTS AFTER ATTENDING THE FUNERAL OF JACK LEYTON

28 Aug

It was a great privilege to attend the funeral of Jack Leyton. Several of the thought that were expressed remained with me as they rang true.

‘If the Olympics can make us proud Canadians, perhaps Jack’s life can make us better Canadians.”

Jack’s letter to Canadians was a manifesto for social democracy. (Stephen Lewis)

One word summed up Jack’s ideals – generosity.
