So, farewell then, Stompin' Tom Connors.
Born and raised in the Maritimes, never comfortable in Toronto or Vancouver, you were the archtypical real Canadian. And you wrote Canada's sound track. So long, eh.
A memorial service celebrating the life of Stompin' Tom will be held at the Memorial Centre in Peterborough ON on Wednesday, March 13th. As he wished, it will be open to the public. Check the Peterborough Examiner for details.
