orange you glad

One of the really nice things about the events celebrating Jack Layton was how easy it was to get a YES.

Can we have a state funeral?


Can we cover Nathan Phillip's Square in chalk drawings?


Can we ride our bikes with the casket from City Hall to Roy Thompson Hall?


Can you make the CN Tower orange on Saturday night?


Wouldn't it be nice if we could celebrate Jack with a few more easy yeses?

Can we have affordable housing?

Can we have a green economy?

Can we stop treating people who use certain drugs as criminals?

Can we make sure that all of our decisions honour the Charter of Rights and Freedoms?

Can we make sure that all of our decisions honour the treaties we made with Aboriginal people?

Can we honour our history of immigration by working to create better conditions and access for the people who choose Canada?

Can we honour our history as peacekeepers by always choosing peace?

And so on.
