Finally!! Canada’s beloved Tragically Hip will receive the Order of Canada, one of the highest honours the Governor General can bestow.
The press release went on to explain the background of the Order. It is truly on of the highest honours a Canadian can receive.
The news came this morning with this press release:
Several petitions on Change.org requested the honour for Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip.
Who knows if that made the difference, and it really doesn’t matter because any Canadian Hip lover knows that there is no other band that has chronicled our history, our country’s beauty and our ‘sound’ more emotionally than our beloved ‘Hip’.
Congratulations Gord Downie, Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair, Johnny Fay & Paul Langois!!!
