It took a lot of courage for the Honourable Jack Layton to go public yesterday with the news that he is being treated for prostate cancer. Mr. Layton is the leader of the New Democratic Party. Always flamboyant and strong in his views, we listen for his voice at every Question Period because we know he will make it interesting. He’s going to make his fight with cancer an interesting battle as well.
We were glad to hear the other party leaders speak well of him and mention that they are keeping him in their thoughts and prayers.
Let us do the same. Pray also for his wife Olivia Chow (also an M.P. and also a cancer survivor) and his family.
