Jack Layton, 1950-2011

My most vivid memory from my many years of riding in the Ride for Heart is riding along and having a tandem bike come up along beside me.  I thought nothing of it other than “cool! a tandem!” until I looked at the people riding it and saw Jack  and Olivia.

I nearly fell off my bike.

Thanks for your inspiration Jack.  I feel lucky to have lived in your riding of Toronto-Danforth for 6 years and actually getting to vote for you federally.

    The picture you are showing is from a Pride parade, not Ride for Heart. Jack & Olivia were always there, long before other politicians dared show their support.
