A principled man of the people. Not so easy to come by.
I wasn't a fan in the sense of listening to him all the time, but I greatly admired his views on the Canadian music industry, and enjoyed his music from time to time. It was always distinctive, identifiable, and proud. His love of place, home, and country should be an inspiration to generations. The news of his death really struck me. How do we continue as he would?
It's time to work up a couple of his songs for my part to "carry on".
What the NDPers did was fantastic.
