The internet wants to get Tragically Hip singer Gord Downie the Governor General’s Order of Canada.  The singer, who it was revealed this week was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, is mentioned in the petition here

“From his songwriting to environmental activism, Gord Downie embodies what it means to be Canadian. Along with all The Tragically Hip band members, he’s had a profound impact not just on the world of music, but on Canadian culture as well.


Established in 1967 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Canada is the cornerstone of the Canadian Honours System, and recognizes outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.


If you believe that Gordon Downie should be recognized by this honor, please sign (and share!)”
