The social media world blew up this morning with the news that one of Canada’s truly unique citizens had passed.
The Tragically Hip toured Canada, gathered fans decade by decade. Gord Downie challenging people across the land to learn more about this country he loved. With acknowledgement of having an inoperable brain cancer, Downie took us all on a journey of enlightenment, conversation, love and finding one’s self.
Gord Downie has touched not just Canadians but those around the world. We were lucky enough to know that Canada was his home and we were all his friends.
