Get well soon Jack!

It’s always a shock when someone you know and admire is struck down by illness. In this case, Jack Layton, leader of the federal NDP, announced this afternoon that he is fighting a new bout of cancer and that he’s already started receiving treatment. Jack’s a fighter and he says he’s going to fight this and win and wants to be back in the House of Commons when it resumes in September. I want to wish Jack and Olivia all the best in the weeks ahead as the treatments continue. Get well soon my friend.

I hope Jack beats that evil scourge but watching him on the toob reminds me of some of my dear friends that died from cancer.Before they went they all had that look around the eyes that Jack has.

I'm with GFB on this one, Veep, in pictures he has that aura which does not bode well.
I've seen it far too much in my time.
I am a great admirer of his also.

GFB & WWW, I know Jack will appreciate your prayers for his recovery. That's about the best we can offer him at this stage.
