Gord Downie passes away at the age of 53.  It's easily the biggest story today on Canadian media.  Toronto's sports radio, the FAN590, has spent much of the morning talking about Gord.  The band had strong ties with the hockey community, in fact Gord's godfather is former Boston Bruins GM Harry Sinden.  Toronto rock stations are, predictably, leaning heavily on The Hip canon today.
