Remembering Jack Layton

Olivia Chow talks about carrying on. Brent Hawkes reflects on his eulogy. Thomas Mulcair salutes his predecessor. Joan Bryden considers the public’s reaction to Jack Layton’s passing. And Tobi Cohen considers the state of play for the NDP.

In the current issue of the magazine, I have a piece about Mr. Layton’s last letter. That piece, plus an essay from Ms. Chow, can also be found in a new collection of this magazine’s writing on the late NDP leader.

Commemorations this week will include a memorial celebration at Nathan Phillips Square on Wednesday evening.
