Remembering Jack

Letter to the Editor

I met Jack Layton in 1984 when I became the Executive Director of STOP 103, a multi-service agency supporting poor and marginal people in the urban core of Toronto. Jack was the fairly new but outspoken alderman for the area that included STOP 103. In a very short period of time, I found that his concerns were my concerns: homelessness, hunger, poverty and the environment.
