Millions of people watched on CBC what could be The Tragically Hip’s last performance. It’s public knowledge that their lead singer, Gord Downie has terminal brain cancer. Glioblastoma is a brain tumor and while un-curable, Gord certainly didn’t look anything less than his old, energetic self. He is a great performer and true Canadian legend; The whole band is. Hopefully this farewell tour will help raise awareness and funding for glioblastoma research. Get better soon, Gord, we’re all pulling for you.
The Tragically Hip will forever be Canada’s band.
