TORONTO – Gord Downie’s family is hoping to organize a public event where fans could honour the late Tragically Hip singer.
Downie’s brother Mike says a “private family gathering” is being held today.
He says a public memorial would have to be “something that Gord would like and appreciate, so we’ll just have to figure that out.”
He adds that the public’s reaction to his death has been “unbelievable.”
Last year, Downie revealed he had terminal brain cancer.
He died Tuesday night at age 53.
