Pretty hard to watch the normally vibrant Jack Layton at today's press conference. Having seen this look before, this appears an extremely serious and sad situation. Like everyone, I wish only the best for Mr. Layton and his family, he's a core warrior in our democratic dance, but beyond that a champion for many ideals we all respect. I'm impressed by his unyielding optimism today, which is probably the primary characteristic of the man. Let's hope the treatment goes well.
The NDP have put a "Get Well Soon" message page up.
