Jack Layton:

Someone who didn't seem to be in politics to become famous.  He seemed to be steadfast on making a difference at all costs.  Someone who managed to stay the same person through it all and maintain his integrity.  Hopefully his legacy will change politics and the behaviour of politicians towards each other and hopefully he showed how the parties can work together instead of fighting like kids, for the good of all Canadians.  A man whos' advocacy for cures for cancer and the importance to save the enviroment will be hard to replace in a political figure.
