Former U.N. Ambassador Stephen Lewis ended his moving eulogy for Jack Layton yesterday with this inspiring quote:

Not only is another world possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

~Arundhati Roy

    The entire message was a rallying cry for social democracy. I am encouraged at the audience response though a few must have been squirming in their seats not knowing whether to join in the applause or not.

      Yes, I hope it reminds Canadians of our honorable legacy of social democracy, of which the medicare of which we are so proud is a legacy.
      And you would appreciate the sentiment somebody tweeted today, Pat:
      “I expect a headline in the National Post today to read Stephen Harper stands up for social democracy” 🙂
