Excerpt from an interview with Ruth Ellen Brosseau, from Quebec newspaper l’action D’Autray:

Quel rôle a joué monsieur Layton dans votre implication politique ?

(R.E.B.) En trente ans de vie publique, monsieur Layton s’est dévoué à améliorer la vie des gens qui l’entouraient. Si j’ai été élue le deux mai dernier, c’est en très grande partie le résultat de ce travail acharné.

The second sentence, translated: If I was elected on May 2nd, it was in very large part the result of his (Jack Layton’s) hard work.

UPDATE 1:40 PM: La Presse columnist Vincent Marissal happened to be on the same return flight from Jack Layton’s funeral as Jean Chrétien and the NDP MP for Chrétien’s former riding, Lise Saint-Denis.  Apparently, the former said “If you had listened to me before the elections (re Liberal/NDP merger), Stephen Harper wouldn’t be in power today.”
