To remember and celebrate Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip's life - lets name an official day after him! This is a petition to get Trudeau to recognize "Gord Downie Day".... Maybe we can make it a holiday or something? Which day should it be?

Kinda like They have Terry Fox Day in Manitoba - to celebrate all the things he's done for canada and our culture - Lets name a day after Gord

Hip fans, are you into this? OR is it too much... it could be too much? I donno... just a thought


Gordie,

May I take this moment to offer sincere gratitude from every one of our hearts. You gave us a soundtrack of life. You are our bedtime stories, you are the Gluten that holds Canada together. You are the sole reason why we are the coolest country in the World. You Sir, have provided us with the WHEREWITHAL to coexist and have mutual COURAGE. You gave us all the VACCINATION SCAR and ultimately defeated our LAKE FEVER. You made us SCARED, and made us believe LOVE IS A FIRST. You don't have to TWIST MY ARM to understand that you were AHEAD BY A CENTURY You owned the GIFTSHOP down by CORDELIA, the HIGHWAY GIRL

You were THE DARKEST ONE during that NAUTICAL DISASTER, yet still created THE LUXURY. The ultimate WHEAT KING that was LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO HAPPEN with your PIGEON CAMERA. You had BOOTS OR HEARTS,

You played our APARTMENT SONG and danced the FLAMENCO. THE KIDS DONT GET IT. Your BUTTS WIGGLIN'. You PUT IT OFF.. ARE YOU READY, USE IT UP, IT'S A GOOD LIFE IF YOU DONT WEAKEN

You took the TRAIN OVERNIGHT. You battled FREAK TURBULENCE. You are IN A WORLD POSSESSED BY THE HUMAN MIND.

I'm ALL TORE UP. You were a SILVER JET. A BEAUTIFUL THING. YER' NOT THE OCEAN. You were FULLY COMPLETELY our man sized ELDORADO.

Now for THE LOOKAHEAD. Us Canadians are now at THE LONELY END OF THE RINK. It'll be a LONG TIME RUNNING Gordie. EVERYTIME YOU GO to BOBCAYGEON, ... WE'LL GO TOO

WE LOVE YOU GORD!

Thank you for being our life! OUR MAN. MACHINE. POEM

Love Canada
