responded to Gord’s final project, Secret Path. The Hip have been Canadian favourites for so long that it was only fitting that they should be acknowledged for their musical contribution, and given Gord’s cancer diagnosis, it made sense that the honour be bestowed sooner rather than later. It’s about getting out of the way of the Indigenous people who have been demanding change for decades now. This, however, is not an article about the Tragically Hip or about what Gord Downie the musician meant to Canada. The main idea of the second article tells how the government of Ontario has been hiding evidence for decades that the grounds of the infamous Dryden mill site upstream of Grassy Narrows are soaked with mercury. The government lied and did nothing instead of acting to clean this mercury as a result many people in Grassy Narrows have been made irreversibly sick from mercury poisoning. Grassy Narrows is demanding a Mercury Home and Treatment Centre so that their sick loved ones can be treated with dignity, close to their families.
