Christmas Letters: Jack Layton

After a look at Harper and Ignatieff's Christmas letters, we move on today to Jack Layton's.

Dear working families,

It’s been a great year for progressives across North America, with Barack Obama entering the White House, and the NDP winning the New Westminster-Coquitlam by election. All together now – Yes We Can! Yes We Can!

The year started with Michael Ignatieff showing a lack of conviction and principle, propping up the Harper Conservatives and their pro-bank, pro-oil, anti-kitchen table agenda. Luckily Canada’s New Democrats were there to oppose both Stephen Harper and ATM fees.

Then, in the fall, when Michael Ignatieff tried to plunge the country into an unwanted election, Canada’s NDP were there to support the Conservatives, in order to get real results for people.

People often come up to me and say “Jack, what do you do when you’re not getting results for people or offering hope to Canadians?”. After signing an autograph for them, I usually reply “thinking about getting results for people”. Because that’s really what it’s all about. That, and kitchen table issues.

Live long and prosper,


PS. Ed Broadbent


  • Hahahaha!

    I was smiling by the time I read "Live long and prosper", but I had to do the impossible not to burst out laughing at the "PS. Ed Broadbent" ending. So sudden and unexpected!

  • All three of these are great, but I agree with Anon -- the PS on this one was the best part of all. Nice.

  • Isn’t his wife’s last name Chow?
    Chow usually means goodbye

    Could have ended: Chow, Jack.

    The PS. Ed Broadbent was a stroke of genius

    Damn Stephen Harper and his anti-kitchen table agenda!
