Happy anniversary, Jack Layton!

Today is the eighth anniversary of the day that Jack Layton became the leader of the New Democratic Party, a position that he’s held ever since. Congratulations, Jack!

I worked on the leadership campaign, though of course I was just a rookie volunteer, fresh out of university at the time. It was an amazing learning experience, and I got to meet some pretty great people as a result, Jack and Olivia being just two examples.

It feels surprising, and rather impressive, that it’s been eight years since the campaign came to fruition. But the results are definitely worth celebrating.
