A Cowichan event in honour of late NDP leader Jack Layton happens Saturday at 11 a.m. in Duncan city square.

Jean Crowder has announced leaders such as Duncan Mayor Phil Kent will be on hand to share words about Layton, who succumbed to cancer on Aug. 22.

Crowder has also started a book for Nanaimo-Cowichan constituents to pen messages of remembrance and condolences in.

The book will be at Crowder’s office today (Friday) at 126 Ingram St., and at the Cobble Hill Fair Saturday.
