Big week for The Tragically Hip – first the Order of Canada, and now a pier!
The former public utilities pier next to Breakwater Park in Kingston will be renamed “Gord Edgar Downie Pier.”
It’s to honour his work with Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, whose goal is to protect our swimmable, fishable, drinkable water.
The city just unveiled the design – the pier will be covered in a shiny silver jacket and pants, with a purple top hat right at the end! Looking good Kingston, looking good.
