The Montreal Gazette reports that today is the day that former NDP leader Jack Layton's memory is going to be honoured today in his toney hometown of Hudson. Today is the day that Jack Layton Park will be christened. How cool is that, eh?
"Speakers at the official opening of the park, formerly known as the Hudson marina on Halcro St. on the shores of the Lake of Two Mountains, will include members of the Layton family, opposition leader Thomas Mulcair, Vaudreuil-Soulanges MP Jamie Nicholls, Vaudreuil MNA Yvon Marcoux, 'as well as other surprises.'"
FYI Hudson is about 30 minutes west of the West Island part of Montreal.
