Jack Layton was a Canadian social democratic politician and Leader of the Official Opposition. He was leader of the New Democratic Party from 2003 to 2011 and the Member of Parliament for Toronto—Danforth from 2004 until his death. Under his leadership, support for the NDP increased in each election. In the 2011 election Layton led the NDP to the most successful result in the party's history, winning 103 seats—enough to form Canada's Official Opposition. Federal support for Layton and the NDP in the election was unprecedented, especially in the province of Quebec where the party won 59 out of 75 seats. He is considered one of the most respected politicians in Canadian history and is credited with reviving youth interest in the political process.
