The entire country was shocked this week to find out The Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie is suffering from an incurable case of brain cancer.
Gord along with The Tragically Hip have had a huge impact on Canadian music and that’s evident by the outpouring of wishes to family, friends and fans.
There’s now a petition to go a step farther and have Gord Downie named to the Order of Canada – an honour to recognize Canadians for outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.
I think we can all agree Gord Downie is a deserving candidate!
