Muskokans are taking some time to remember a Canadian icon.

The Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie passed away after his battle with brain cancer on Tuesday night. The family announced his death to the nation on Wednesday morning.

The MyMuskokaNow Newsroom went to find out what impact this iconic musician had on your life.

Many Muskokans said they’d be adding The Tragically Hip to their playlists this week.

Downie announced last year that he was suffering from the incurable strain of cancer. His final show with his bandmates in Kingston was televised nationwide last summer.
