    I'm sorry but I don't see how you can compare the hip concert to Terry Fox in any way shape or form :o

    You can't compare any of the other photos to what Terry Fox achieved. That isn't the title of the comic - it's "Four Images You'll only get if you're Canadian". In that regard, it's absolutely correct.

    In that sense it's correct. I can't help but feel like it's overstating the importance of that concert though. I think in general I'm just a little annoyed with the media tying my nationality to a band that I've never really thought about until this recent event.

    I see it as more of a way to see how Canadians come together when faced with such an event! I am not in the least interested in the Hip however think it is amazing to hear that 1/3 of all Canadians came together to watch this concert in any which way they could.

    The Friendly Giant doesn't mean anything to me either but I'm not going to whine about it.

    also, did they have someone with a drone? A lot of shots of them they couldn't take themselves.

    I should have been more clear, I was thinking funny or die, something along those lines.

    Half the country watched the concert. That doesn't happy every day. Wether you like them or not, they are up there with Stompin Tom on the Canadiana scale.
