Jack Layton Candlelight Vigil and Memorial at the Vancouver Art Gallery

Vancouver came out to remember Jack Layton and to pay their last respects one of Canada’s greatest politicians!

John Gilbert “Jack” Layton, PC (July 18, 1950 – August 22, 2011) was a Canadian social democratic politician and the Leader of the Official Opposition. He was the leader of the New Democratic Party from 2003 to 2011, and previously sat on Toronto City Council, serving at times during that period as acting mayor and deputy mayor of Toronto. He was the Member of Parliament for the constituency of Toronto—Danforth from 2004 until his death.
