Big shoes left to fill

Jack Layton legacy

To the editor:

Jack Layton demonstrated his political skill in taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the Liberals and Bloc Quebecois.

He developed his party into a mass movement and used a combination of his popular support and behind-the-scenes intrigue to propel himself into the official opposition.

Furthermore, he raised the profile of National Socialism, showed how a modern “civilized” country could behave, and created a virtual certainty that opponents would misjudge him.

His shoes will not be easily filled.
