With the help of 59 seats in Quebec, Jack Layton's NDP became the official opposition for the first time. The party won a total of 103 seats, the most ever for the NDP. Raising his cane in the air in victory, Layton told jubilant supporters that a new chapter was beginning. (The NDP leader would not have a chance to see his vision of the future become reality. Layton lost his battle with cancer on August 22nd at the age of 61. Layton's widow, Olivia Chow, made a plea to her fellow MPs to work hard and stay united as they picked up the torch from Layton.)
