Member of Parliament for Toronto-Danforth / Toronto - Danforth (Via Parl.gc.ca)
Today we learned of the passing of Jack Layton, MP for Toronto--Danforth, leader of the Official Opposition. He wrote a letter earlier that all Canadians should read. I find it amazing, but consistent with his character, that even as he knew he was dying he spent the time to write to Canadians to wish us all well for the future.
I lost my own father to cancer in May 2009, and it is with this knowledge of the feelings that I offer my condolences to his family, friends, and many others that will miss him.
I have sent a form letter to all Conservative MPs, and a derived letter to all NDP MP's asking the above question.
Thus far I haven't heard anything from Conservative MPs other than some acknowledging receipt.
I have received better response from the Official Opposition NDP. Jack Layton's staffer let me know that "MP Charlie Angus will continue on in his role as critic for digital issues". A few moments ago I received a voice call from Peter Stoffer himself to let me know to contact Charlie. Another MP staffer is looking into setting up an in-person meeting with a newly elected MP.
Many people have received this form letter, reproduced below.
Thank you for writing to express your views with respect to proposed changes to the copyright legislation.
Please keep those letters going. This weekend is a great time to send letters so that MPs are well aware of the interest when the bill is tabled -- possibly on Monday.
