Remembering Jack Layton
Statement. August 22, 2011

Elders, Leaders, Chiefs and Staff of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Opposition Leader Jack Layton.

"Without question, Jack Layton will be greatly missed," declared Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, President of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs.

"Jack, in his tireless quest to advance the issues of social justice, found the time on many occasions to walk with us and offer his unconditional support to the rights and interests of Indigenous Peoples across Canada.  For this, we shall be eternally grateful," added Grand Chief Stewart Phillip.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jack Layton's wife, Olivia Chow and all members of his bereaved family," concluded Grand Chief Phillip.
