A thank you message from Jack Layton

Dear friends,

On Tuesday, millions of Canadians cast their votes and put their trust in New Democrats from coast to coast to coast.

Working families gave our team a stronger mandate and elected the second largest caucus of New Democrats ever.

Together, we broke through Stephen Harper's fortress Alberta by electing Linda Duncan in Edmonton.

Together, we also elected a record breaking 17 New Democrats in Ontario - virtually sweeping Northern Ontario.

And I'm pleased to welcome Niki Ashton, the youngest member of our caucus and a strong addition to our team of women MPs. Once again, New Democrats have elected the highest percentage of women of any of the parties.

With your support, our New Democrat team ran the strongest campaign we've run in a generation.

But with economic uncertainty, working families are anxious. They're anxious about their pensions and savings. They're anxious about their jobs. More and more are having a tough time making ends meet.

That's why, with a larger mandate in Parliament, the first item of business for New Democrat MPs will to be to roll up our sleeves and get to work on ensuring ordinary Canadians are protected.

In the upcoming Parliament, New Democrats will be in the House, day in and day out holding Stephen Harper to account and ensuring that no family is left behind.

Thank you again to all of the hard-working Canadians who made this great campaign a reality.

Hon. Jack Layton

Leader of the New Democratic Party
