NDP Federal leader Jack Layton has been stricken with Prostate Cancer. The 59 year old MP, and former Toronto City councilor will continue to stay on as leader of his party while he recuperates from treatment.
“I’m a fighter,” he said, noting he plans to stay on both as party leader and MP for Toronto-Danforth. With his wife, Trinity-Spadina MP Olivia Chow, standing behind him, he also stressed that prostate cancer is an illness that can be beaten.”
I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Layton earlier this year and was pleasantly surprised by his candor and points made during the interview. Hopefully he has a safe and speedy full recovery.
