R.I.P. Jack Layton

I saw Jack Layton speak live at the Campaign for America's Future conference a few years back. I really liked his speech, and thought it was cool that our Canadian friends had a real progressive leader in their midst. He spoke amazingly about NAFTA, and was really impressive. Sadly he died of cancer earlier this week, after a career of leading his New Democratic party to historic wins and making them the official opposition party of the ruling conservatives.

Thanks to the magic of the internet, I found the speech he gave at that conference. Check it out:

Imagine that, a left of center politician who uses his power to grow a liberal political movement!
