Inspired by Jack Layton’s letter to Canadians, Raffi, West Coast singer, song-writer and founder of Centre for Child Honouring, turned it into a song:

“Layton’s last words gave Canada a historic moment. His message of love, hope, and optimism transcend politics — these are enduring values for young and old to embrace.”
