I learned the terrible, shocking news of Jack Layton's death a bit late, and only because friends texted and emailed me. I tend to be in a news bubble on Monday mornings. I'm heartsick. We all are.
My heart breaks for Olivia and all of Jack's family, and for all of us, his extended family.
I'm also so happy he was able to lead his party to historic victory in his lifetime.
What a terrible loss.
