TERRACE residents have the opportunity to watch funeral services for Jack Layton at a gathering here today.
The gathering takes place in the community meeting room of the Skeena Mall beginning at 11 am. Coffee and tea will be available.
The federal leader of the New Democratic Party died Aug. 22 from cancer and a state funeral service is taking place at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto.
Layton took the federal NDP to its greatest electoral accomplishment in this year’s federal election when it became the official opposition.
Layton, 61, had survived one bout of prostate cancer but a second cancer took hold during the summer.
Gatherings are also taking place in Prince Rupert, in Kitimat and in Smithers.
