JACK LAYTON DEAD AT 61

Jack Layton, leader of the NDP, the official opposition, died this morning of cancer at the age of 61.

Layton tried to be everything to everybody. He promised tougher legislation on corporations in the good times, then promised to make it easier for corporations to operate in Canada once the economic downturn happened.

Layton is survived by his wife, Olivia Chow, and two children.
