The Tragically Hip are being awarded, The Order Of Canada. I wonder every day how Gord, is doing.
Here is a portion of the official release from the Government.
Today, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, announced six new appointments to the Order of Canada. New appointees are Sylvia Maracle and the members of The Tragically Hip.
Ms. Maracle and Mr. Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip will accept their insignia as part of a special presentation of Canadian honours in recognition of outstanding Indigenous leadership on
Monday, June 19, 2017, at Rideau Hall.
I really hope this ceremony will be televised, we all love The Hip, and all involved are deserving of the honour.
