Canada’s music industry and inbound foreign dignitaries, along with longstanding friends and family, gather this afternoon at Roy Thomson Hall to pay tribute to Deane Cameron, CM, affectionately known to many as Captain Canada.
The funeral service at the concert hall is expected to include several eulogies from notables, and performances by one or more artists whose careers have been enhanced through his encouragement and position as a long-standing executive at what was once known as Capitol-EMI of Canada.
The extraordinary outpouring of emotions felt by the music community is well documented. Today, we offer the final salute to the man whose kindness, generosity, and profound love of music, made him a legend in his own time.
With his passing, he leaves us with a legacy to aspire to.
