Mr. Lightfoot was just such an imprinter, a gifted musician whose songs played in our minds and hearts at all major and minor moments in our lives.
As news of his passing spreads like a dark cloud over the country, what strikes me most are the stories being told by everyday Canadians about his kindness. He was a musical icon, but he was humble and kind, never missing an opportunity to stop and chat with folks he had met along the way.
Whenever I think about what makes Canada Canada, and Canadians Canadians, I often think of not just his music, but of the way he was.
We were lucky to have had him at all.
