Downie, who announced past year that he had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, has become a strong advocate for Indigenous people.
Tragically Hip members Rob Baker, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gord Sinclair, were invested with Downie as Members of the Order of Canada for their contribution to Canadian music and for their support of social and environmental causes.
