Layton Steps Down as NDP Leader (Temporarily)

Did you know Canada.. as we mentioned yesterday on Twitter Jack Layton, the leader of the NDP, has taken a temporary leave of absence to receive treatment for a new form of cancer - this is his second battle with cancer. Layton has already fought prostate cancer and is recovering from a recent hip fracture, often seen walking with a cane lately. There has been no word on the type of cancer Layton is now suffering from but Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he and all Canadians are behind Jack Layton in his fight.

Layton said he expects to be back in the House of Commons on September 19th. We wish him well and hope to see him back and healthy in September.
