In Canada, There Are No Stars Without Gord

It has now been two years without Gord Downie. To borrow a phrase from David Bowie, the stars look very different today. I cannot be in the darkness of a northern night, looking up into that spectacular bowl of stars above, without thinking of the Tragically Hip frontman and poet extraordinaire Gord Downie. On this second anniversary of his death, we should all look up.

Thank you for the music, Gord. Canada loves their patron saint.
