The Heart Is Our Greatest Resource, a tribute to Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip.

Gordon Edgar Downie CM (February 6, 1964 – October 17, 2017) was a Canadian rock singer-songwriter, musician, writer and activist. He was the lead singer and lyricist for the Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip, which he fronted from their formation in 1984 until his death in 2017. Downie was widely regarded as one of the most influential and popular artists in the Canadian alternative rock scene.

Downie was heavily involved in environmental movements, especially issues concerning water rights. He was board member of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper. With Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, Downie helped work on a cause to prevent a cement company from burning tires for fuel. He was also a part of the Swim Drink Fish Music club, a project that unites artists and environmentalists in a music club to raise money for Waterkeeper organizations in Canada 

Downie died of glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, on October 17, 2017, at the age of 53 in Toronto.
