Amazing what he was doing right up to the end. I didn't see it coming this quickly but maybe it's easier that way. His legacy will live on through his music and the continued aboriginal reconciliation. Let's just see what tomorrow brings.

A musical career for the ages. A Canadian icon forever. RIP Gordie.

The older Leafs plan to teach the younger ones about Canada's music icon and the cultural impact/contributions of Dorwnie's & The Hip's songs/lyrics meant to Canadians from coast to coast.
