To help accommodate the large crowds expected to attend the funeral proceedings at Roy Thomson Hall, the public will be able to watch live coverage in the Barbara Frum Atrium at the CBC Broadcasting Centre in Toronto.
The death of Jack Layton, Leader of the Official Opposition and Federal NDP Leader, continues to touch Canadians across the country, including here in Toronto, where he first cut his political teeth as a city councillor.
Television coverage, hosted by CBC News chief correspondent Peter Mansbridge, begins at 1 p.m. ET, to follow the procession through the streets of Toronto from City Hall to Roy Thomson Hall, where the funeral will be held.
