The City Institute mourns the passing of a great Canadian urbanist. Jack Layton was an inspiration to all of us who care about cities, their people and their environments. We are proud to have hosted him as part of our City Seminar series in 2007. His talk was appropriately titled "Canada's Urban Future" and is still available for download in the 2007 events page of the website: click here to access his talk. Our thoughts are with his family.
