Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gives touching speech on the loss of Gord Downie
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a very touching speech honouring the late Gord Downie. He was choking back tears while he said, “For almost five decades, Gord Downie uncovered and told the stories of Canada. He was the frontman of one of Canada’s most iconic bands, a rock star, artist, and poet whose evocative lyrics came to define a country… On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to Gord’s family, friends, bandmates and crew members, and his many, many fans. He will be sorely missed.”
Gord passed away surrounded by his family on Tuesday night after a long brain cancer battle.
