The Nelson-Creston NDP constituency association will celebrate federal leader Jack Layton’s life on Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Lakeside Rotary Park shelter.

MLA Michelle Mungall and BC Southern Interior Alex Atamanenko will both be on hand, and there will be a card to sign for Layton’s family.

“Along with sharing memories of Jack, we will be honouring his commitment to social justice with a barbecue and election prep,” constituency association president Marya Skrypiczajko says. “Jack wanted to see the NDP become government in BC and we don’t want to let him down.”

“Jack Layton inspired so many Canadians,” Mungall added. “He’s had the opportunity to meet many people in our area, and we wanted to make sure we had a chance to share our memories and honour his legacy.”

Meanwhile, Atamanenko is providing a book of condolences that can be signed at his office in Castlegar.
