A celebration of life


From the Globe, details of how Jack Layton will be honoured this week.

Planning now begins in earnest for Mr. Layton’s state funeral, which is to be held Saturday afternoon, likely around 2 p.m., at Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall. His body will also lie in the foyer of the House of Commons, where he conducted so many scrums with reporters. (The Hall of Honour is where prime ministers and governors-general lie in state.)

The Parliamen Hill visitation will begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday for dignitaries. The doors will open to the public at 12:30 p.m. and stay open until about 8 p.m., depending on the number of people. There will be another visitation on Thursday, which is to end at 2 p.m.

    • I’m sending jealousy. 

      • Looks like it was received.

        • See correction above.  Original would have been coals to Newcastle. ;-)

      • That should have been sensing.  Should have waited until I had my coffee. 

  2. I wish the Cons would release all the attack/hate ads against Layton they had in the can during the last election. Just so we would know. Even out the coverage a bit, eh Tony?
