“As many as 10,000 people a day visit the Killam Library — students, staff, faculty, and community members — making it one of the busiest places on campus. This high traffic location provides a constant daily reminder of Chanie Wenjack’s tragic story.”
“An amazing night and a wonderful tribute to #GordDownie and #TragicallyHip. A beautiful way to celebrate Gord, @thehipdotcom and @downiewenjack. Some very strong messages were received and the performances and speeches were stellar. Thank you!”
