loyal opposition

Very sad to hear that Jack Layton has died this morning.

I met him when the Teaching Assistants were on strike. It was 40 below with the wind chill factor and he came and walked the picket line with us. Though other future leaders of federal parties were on the University faculty at the time, and expressed their solidarity with us, we didn't see them out there in the snow.
