Well well well. Turns out our PM is a fan of the Tragically Hip just like the rest of us! He will be taking in the final concert in Kingston, he released a statement saying:
“Gord Downie is someone I have an extraordinary amount of respect for,” he told a news conference.
“His status as an extraordinary Canadian creative force and icon is not to be understated.”
Back in June, Trudeau said he wasn’t sure if he’d make it to any of the concerts on the final tour…but he did say that he’s been lucky enough to meet Gord Downie several times.
