Politician
    (July 18, 1950-August 22, 2011)
    Born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Birth name is John Gilbert Layton
    City councillor for the city of Toronto (1982-91)
    Interim deputy mayor of Toronto (1984-86)
    Leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada (2003- )
    Member of Parliament in the riding of Toronto-Danforth (2004- )
    Head of Official Opposition (May 2, 2011- )
    He is considered too left wing by political analysts.
    He is divorced and remarried.
    He was arrested for trespassing after he crossed a picket line in protest of the Eaton's workers strike (1984).
    He led a coalition of people who objected to Toronto's bid for the Summer Olympics.
    He canceled his second honeymoon after sustaining injuries after a bike accident in which he crashed into a newspaper box.
    Prior to his bid for mayor of Toronto, he frequently attended city council meetings wearing blue jeans.
    In 2011 it was revealed he had been caught up in a police raid on an illegal massage parlor sixteen years earlier (he was not charged).
    He is a fourth generation politician.
    He is fluent in English, French and Cantonese.
    When he decided to take a serious stance at politics, he abandoned his trademark casual look.
    He turned the federal NDP party from a political doormat to a threat upon taking over the reins of the party's leadership.
    His party has held the balance of power in Parliament upon his election.
    He was obliged to take a leave of absence as Head of Official opposition after being diagnosed with cancer (July 26, 2011).
    Shortly before his death, he wrote a letter to the Canadian people that ended 'Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world.'
