Available Expert – The Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie dies at age 53

Queen’s expert Robert Morrison is available for comment on the passing of The Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie, who was diagnosed with a terminal form of brain cancer in May 2016.

“This is a day that we all knew was coming, but somehow that doesn’t really soften the blow. We have lost a person who consolidated us, who pushed us, who excited us, who taught us, and who inspired us," says Dr. Morrison.
