first_imgPhotobombing the picture was Downie’s longtime friend and celebrated Canadian author, Joseph Boyden.The CBC reported that the entire band, along with Boyden, were taking a post-concert fishing trip that would be led by aboriginal guides. A spokesperson for the Tragically Hip’s record label, Universal Music, did not respond to requests for comment. Facebook Downie posed for a photograph this week after he was spotted by a local woman, Catherine Cheechoo, at the Timmins Airport during one leg of his jaunt to northern Ontario“Oh. My. Gord,” Cheechoo wrote on her Instagram post.

He has taken them himself in the past.So when the curtains closed after the Tragically Hip’s final concert — one in which the singer struck a political note urging Canadians to address the plight of First Nations — it made perfect sense for Downie to flee the spotlight for the sun, stars and fresh air in abundance on James Bay.That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a surprise.
