Statement by TGTE Democrats on the Death of Jack Layton

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2011) - We are deeply saddened to learn this morning of the death of Jack Layton.

On behalf of all Tamils living in Canada, we salute Jack Layton's contribution to public life, especially his voice against the oppression of Tamil people by Sri Lankan Government.

Jack Layton gave his fight against cancer everything he had. Indeed, Jack took the fight as a challenge and never backed down.

To his wife Olivia, his family, and to his colleagues and friends, TGTE Democrats offer our heartfelt condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.
