"The last 150 years aren't as much worth celebrating as we think," Downie said. "But the new 150 years can be years of building an actual nation. Imagine if they were part of us and we them, how incredibly cool it would make us?"

In this excerpt from an article Rolling Stone published after his death, Gord Downie is, of course, referring to the indigenous people of Canada. We have so much work to do in the way of unifying this country and making peace with the horrific mistakes made in our history. 

10% of every sale will be split and donated to First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada and The Gord Downie Chenie Wenjack Fund. Both are incredibly worthy causes, so if you know a Tragically Hip fan, please consider purchasing one or two as a gift knowing you will be contributing to aid in healing our country. This is my way, albeit a tiny step in contributing to helping create change. 

Please read this article that explains why reconciliation is so important: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/marina-glogovac/we-can-all-work-towards-reconciliation-with-canada-s-indigenous-peoples_a_23214811/
