Hundreds turn out for Layton memorial

Hundreds showed up to Harbourside Park last night for “St. John’s Remembers Jack”. It was a tribute to former NDP Leader Jack Layton who died Monday following a battle with cancer which also allowed the public to sign a book of condolences. In addition to local members of the NDP, other dignitaries present included Liberal MP Scott Simms, provincial Liberal Leader Kevin Aylward, City Councillor Sheilagh O’Leary and Nurses’ Union President Debbie Forward.
