Thank you Mel, for the personal touches in your tribute, as well as the history, some of which I didn't know, though I have been an NDP supporter for years.

People who didn't know Jack thought he was confrontational. He was anything but. He would, and could, work with anyone. He would work with people he thought were damn fools. He would work with people he KNEW were damn fools.

George Fox, one of the 17th century founders of the Quakers, told his fellow Quakers to "walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone." Jack wasn't a Quaker, but that is what he did (and it's a lot easier said than done!). He treated everyone with respect. He treated everyone as if they had something to contribute. No doubt that is why he brought out the best in the people he worked with. And he certainly walked cheerfully over the world.
