Jack Layton's Thanksgiving Statement

As we gather with friends and family this Thanksgiving, I extend best wishes to you and your family.

In Canada, we have so much to be thankful for; rich natural resources, a talented and tolerant people and a future with unprecedented opportunity. While we have so much to thankful for, we also have so much to look forward to.

But with economic uncertainty facing Canada and the world economy, the need for strong leadership here at home is more important than ever. Time and time again when faced with adversity, Canadians have risen to the challenge by sticking together and looking out for one another. As Prime Minister, I'll protect the most vulnerable and ensure the needs of working families and middle-income Canadians are put first.

And as you gather with friends and family this Thanksgiving you'll be discussing the choices before you on Election Day. The choice you are being asked to make is which leader is on your side?

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
