Harper talks with Rev. Brent Hawkes, who gave Jack Layton's funeral sermon.

During his sermon, the Reverand revealed some of Jack Layton's last words: "I have had a great and blessed life, but it has been far from perfection."

"The torch is now passed. The job of making the world a better place is up to us," he said, ending the sermon with Jack's own words. "So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic, and together we'll change the world."
