FROM BOB EGAN – AN OPEN LETTER TO CANADA
Bob Egan here, writing an open letter to Canada on the cusp of my final show with Blue Rodeo.
These last 17 years have literally been a dream come true for me. From an awkward teen playing the Legion Halls of Central Illinois to a grown man playing on the stages of the world, this journey has exceeded my wildest dreams.
Seventeen years ago on my first day in Canada, as I walked down Queen Street in Toronto, I experienced a feeling I had never felt in my life. I felt like I belonged. I felt surrounded by people I could relate to. I felt at peace. And after 40 years of searching, I finally felt at home.

Blue Rodeo Stand Together With Refugees
Blue Rodeo has partnered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to record Stand Together with Refugees. In addition to a making a cash donation to support the Syrian refugee crisis late last year, Blue Rodeo continues to show its support for refugees worldwide through its partnership with UNHCR. The UN Refugee Agency is responsible for all refugees until they find a permanent place to call home – no matter where they are – and has recently launched the “Nobody Left Outside” campaign to raise funds to provide shelter solutions for 2 million refugees in the next three years and tackle the biggest global displacement crisis since the Second World War.
For more information on the campaign and how you can help, visit www.nobodyleftoutside.org
