Gords birthday is two months away.
How much coverage does this get in Canada?

How shall we celebrate it on site?
Any ideas...?

Frank.

I am almost 100% positive that it gets NO coverage anywhere else in Canada and probably won't here in Toronto either. The only time it gets noticed is when Gord's doing Massey in November and it is mentioned then in any articles in the Toronto papers.

Frank,

I don't know if it's possible. Florian could tell us perhaps. I'm wondering if we could start a topic like "Happy Birthday Gord!!" and have each member type a birthday greeting, run it off and send it to him from the members of Florian's website. Good idea, bad idea??

I posted the EMP address and suggested everyone end Gord a card and thank him for all he has meant to you for all these years but I don't know where it went! I know he gets his mail and reads it when he's in the office a few times a week. If Florian thinks it's a go we could start a thread, have everyone post their birthday wishes and thoughts and he could print it out and send it to Gord or I could do it and send it from here in Toronto in a card.
Hey Florian, stop working for a minute - what do you think?

Hi,

This is a very good idea, and I've started a 'Gordon Lightfoot Birthday Topic'.

cards can be sent to EMP on Yonge St. or posted here and I can print them out and send them to him. I took a few hundred to him a couple of years ago plus a whack of get well wishes earlier this year (or late last year).
Turning 65 is a milestone for sure but it's an even more important one this year - at least I think so....
It's quite a wonderful few months coming up for Gord - his Tribute album on Oct.7, finishing his new album for the new year, his Order of Canada (Nov. as well i think) and his birthday on Nov.17.

I still have that adress from when I sent him a get well soon card! I almost sent him a B-Day card last year but I chickened out. I saw this card at my local grocery store that said,"For you're birthday let's go bowling in Canada,then we can say we went bowling in Canada!" (Needless to say I didn't get the joke!) That's why I chickened out. Not this year though! Later!
