Gord Downie’s fight resumed last night in Ottawa. This was a solo show…separate from The Tragically Hip.
Gord took to the stage for a multimedia performance of his new album, “Secret Path” It tells the story of 12-year-old Chanie Wenjack, who died in 1966 after running away from a Residential School near Kenora, Ont., 50 years ago this weekend.
The Secret Path animated film was screened during last night’s one-hour performance.
Gord’s brother Mike Downie spoke with Global News prior to the show.
