Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip gave us an emotional goodbye last month, but that was not the end! Gord is leaving us with with his new project called “Secret Path”, which tells the story of a young boy in Ontario who died trying to escape from a residential school. The story will be told in the form a new album, graphic novel and animated film.
The album and graphic novel are set to be released on October 18th, and the film will be televised via CBC on Oct 23rd at 9pm.
Here is the official film trailer.
Proceeds will be donated to the Gord Downie Secret Path Fund for Truth and Reconciliation via The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at The University of Manitoba.
Thank you Gord
