Death in the Family

Canada reacts to Gord Downie’s death, story behind Bobcaygeon, new album due Friday

Canada has reacted to the death of The Tragically Hip frontman Gord Downie like there’s been a death in the family. Even if you weren’t a big fan, you were amazed at how many of his songs you knew. And if you were a fan, you got a lesson in Canadian history, politics, and literature all while rocking-out to some of the most poetic music the country has ever exported.
