Photos: Jack Layton memorial attracts a large Vancouver crowd
The north lawn of the Vancouver Art Gallery was filled with people tonight who had come to pay their last respects to NDP Leader Jack Layton.
Among the crowd of hundreds was a large number of NDP politicians. At the federal level, they included MPs Don Davies and Jinny Sims.
Provincial MLAs in attendance included the leader, Adrian Dix, along with Harry Bains, Jenny Kwan, Shane Simpson, and Raj Chouhan. Vancouver park commissioners Aaron Jasper and Raj Hundal were also there, as was former NDP premier Glen Clark.
