As seen today during The Tragically Hip's fan club presale, with all concerts being sold out within seconds, it seems that online scalper sites like StubHub have been price gouging and trying to profit off The Hip's final tour and Gord Downie's prognosis.
True fans are now being asked to pay well over $1000 to see this band play together one last time.
I don't think I need to stress the importance of what The Hip means to many Canadians and are outraged to see the outright greed of others by the sheer amount of tickets being sold for well over the ticket price.
I urge that we start this campaign towards having the Canadian Broadcast Corporation broadcast live the final show of The Tragically Hip's tour in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario.
It would give the whole nation a chance to view a band that has meant so much to so many one last time
