New initiative by Gord Downie and First Nations

Gord Downie is teaming up with a prominent aboriginal leader to encourage companies to promote dialogue and reconciliation with First Nations people.

The Tragically Hip’s frontman and Assembly of First Nations regional Chief Morley Googoo announced the project yesterday before Downey’s concert in Halifax.  The Legacy Room initiative has bars, restaurants and other companies set up a special room where aboriginal issues could be discussed.
