Thanks everyone for posting pictures, video, info. on this event. It just proves what a consummate gentleman Gord is to attend this fundraiser, play a couple of songs and hang out for autographs afterward. The icing on the cake is that the fundraiser raised at least $10,000 for the victims of the earthquake in L'Aquila. My father is from the town of Introdacqua, L'Aquila, and I we have a lot of family there. I can't wait to tell him about this.

My paternal grandparents were from there but I have no idea about family still there - I'm sure there are many relatives I've never heard of or met.

Wow, Char, maybe we're related! We have the same great taste in music after all. My Dad has a younger brother, wife and family and many nieces and nephews, cousins etc. still there. We all went over in July 2001 and got to meet most of the relatives. It is a gorgeous area with mountain views all around. The weather was warm, but not humid which was great. Have you ever visited?

I think you'll love Italy. I just called my Dad, and he loved hearing about the fundraiser. He said there are so many Italians in Canada...which I'm sure you already know. He said a cousin of mine went first to Hamilton and then moved here when he got married. I said Hamilton is where the event took place, and he thought that was great. I wish he had a computer so I could forward the pictures and articles on to him.

It was just a few years ago that Toronto had the most Italians living outside of Italy..huge huge population here.
Little Italy is a fab spot in town as well as the Italian festivals that are held in several communities.

As of 2006, 1,449,695 Canadians residents stated they had Italian ancestry, in which 741,045 had sole Italian origins while the other 704,285 were of partial Italian origin along with other ethnic origins, chiefly with other European ethnic groups e.g. Italian-Irish, Italian-English, Italian-French, etc. The latter group climbed by almost 25%, while the Italian Canadian population as a whole grew by 12% since the 2001 census.

In 2006 Canadians of Italian ancestry make up 4.6% of the population of Canada, a rise from 4.3% in 2001. The majority live in Ontario (867,980) where they constitute more than seven per cent of the population, while another 300,000 live in Quebec.
In the town of Vaughan just outside of Toronto over 40% of the population is Italian.

I hadn't known there was such a large pop/community of Italians there and boy...reminded me of the old days w/that side of my family. I felt right at home at this fundraiser -with the sense of community and HUGS lol. Being someplace where I don't have to spell my last name lol.

My Italian family used to do all the fundraisers in town...cooking up huge vats of ziti and when I was old enough (when I was 9)...boy they put me to work! I'm used to being on that end and so when I attend as a guest, it's hard for me to not lend a hand to help out.

Dang......I had just figured out a way to brace my monitor for rotated viewing, I check in, and now I'm laying on my side watching them.

Just kidding.

Thanks for the pics and vids. Classics.

btw...I was reprimanded at the US border for being noncompliant with the new requirements to enter the US

oh and would be nice if this somehow disqualifies me from jury duty! This latest is about my 9th or 10th jury duty notice (including one Federal, 18 month grand jury).

Yep, love "the look" Char!

Thanks so much Char and TG for the excellent stills and videos. Almost felt like I was there.

Thanks to Gord too for giving so much of himself.

Sad news, I've just learned that Stewart -who had traveled with his brothers to the fundraiser, has lost his battle with cancer. He passed away yesterday.

That's so sad to hear. I spoke with Miriam on Thursday I think, so I could get info to send the pics/video I have. I will still send them along to his brother Robert..
I just now rec'd an e-mail from Miriam about this sad news. Stewart was a pilot, only 45, with 3 children.
It's wonderful that only a couple of weeks ago he had his wish fulfilled in meeting Lightfoot..
