There’s a live stream on CBC of members of the public in Toronto paying tribute to Jack Layton, who died this week.

It’s extraordinary, no words, 4 at a time they come forward stand by his casket they bow, pray, despair, the odd salute, comfort each other, very powerful stuff.

The plain people mourn the best, their body language and moments of stillness say so much.

Deeply moving to witness this.
