Jack Layton believed so much in the power of democracy and of this Parliament. I invite all honourable members in this House to join me in picking up this torch and making this an institution in which Canadians can be proud
Turmel quotes
We have to do it and we will do it. We represent Canadians but Canadians will be there for us too
Turmel
We have lost a great Canadian.We have lost a friend. But I know that when I look out at all of you I am looking at Jack Layton's legacy.




Turmel Nycole quotes
We remember the Tommy Douglas quote Jack included in every email he sent: 'Courage my friends, 'tis never too late to build a better world'.
Turmel Nycole
It is not on the table for the simple reason that the constitution is clear: it's one member, one vote.
Nycole Turmel quotes
I'm honoured by the confidence the council has shown in me as well as my team and Jack Layton. I clearly have big shoes to fill, but I'm also fortunate to be standing on such a solid foundation.Jack Layton has spent eight years building this New Democrat movement for a better Canada, eight years building a team that is ready to tackle any circumstance with hope and optimism. That's exactly what you can expect from us in the coming weeks
Nycole Turmel
I have to say, on behalf of the NDP, from coast to coast, I want to thank all Canadians for their wishes and really, their love for Jack.
Turmel Nycole quotes
We promise we'll carry on.
Turmel
New Democrats will continue to propose ideas that put Canadians families first, and push for real action to ensure families aren't being left behind in this economy. The question we have for Stephen Harper and his Conservative caucus is: will they keep sitting back waiting around for the U.S. economy to rebound?
Turmel Nycole
"I think it's very disappointing, I don't know that I have a lot to say but I do think Canadians will find this disappointing. I think Canadians expect that any political party that wants to govern the country be unequivocally committed to this country. I think that's the minimum Canadians expect."
Nycole Turmel
Mr. Harper always has an approach that is divisive and we don't agree with that.Create an environment where people are talking to each other, where they are helping each other, instead of an environment where you create things that will go against the security of the people.




Nycole Turmel quotes
"Nycole Turmel is already doing a very good job, and watch out Stephen Harper.Our team is united behind Nycole Turmel and I have no doubt she'll do a very, very good job in the House of Commons."
Nycole Turmel
Jack Layton improved the tone of the debate in Parliament. He firmly believed we could have passionate disagreements without being disrespectful or disgraceful to each other. Let us all honour his memory by conducting the next session of Parliament in this spirit
Turmel quotes
We are not considering at all a prolongation or adding months or time to the mission in Libya.
Turmel Nycole
We must remain focused on the job of building our party. Jack showed us how we can do politics differently, how we can listen and respect other opinions and at the end of the day, remain united. And that's what we need to do today. We'll take difficult decisions but at the end of the day, we need to walk out of here and be united.
