Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau cried, as he delivered a touching eulogy for one of the North American nation's most-loved musicians.

The sign outside Toronto City Hall shone red and white on Wednesday (October 18) and was momentarily dimmed at 11 p.m.in Downie's honour.

Meanwhile, tributes in the Tragically Hip's hometown of Kingston have been pouring in since news of Downie's death broke.

The passing of Gord Downie has touched millions of Canadians.

In addition to the CTV broadcast, the film is available in a free live stream on CTV.ca and in the CTV GO app, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/MT.

The lead singer of the Tragically Hip passed away on Tuesday after a long, aggressive battle with an incurable brain cancer at the age of 53. It will also be streaming online here.

"Viewers are given a unique and exclusive perspective into the Tragically Hip's world through interviews, verité, intimate behind-the-scenes moments, fan testimonials, audience experience, and performance footage", a press release for the documentary said.
