Condolence book available in memory of former City Councillor Jack Layton

The City of Toronto has a condolence book available in the City Hall rotunda for people to express their sympathy in memory of former City Councillor Jack Layton.

A second condolence book will be available tomorrow at the East York Civic Centre when the building opens at 7:30 a.m.

The Honourable Jack Layton, Leader of the Official Opposition, Member of Parliament, lost a determined and brave battle against cancer early this morning. He served on Toronto City Council and Metro Council for 18 years.

Flags at City Hall, Metro Hall and Toronto civic centres are being lowered to half mast, and will remain lowered until the end of the day of his funeral.
