We Lost Another Great Canadian With The Passing Of Rita MacNeil ...

"Rita MacNeil, the Canadian singer-songwriter from Cape Breton with the sweetly powerful voice, passed away Tuesday night following complications from surgery. She was 68.

MacNeil’s longtime promoter, Brian Edwards, says MacNeil had entered hospital a few days ago because of an infection. She was advised to undergo what he described as a “routine surgery,” but then developed complications during the recovery.

“The operation itself went well and then shortly afterward, she went into a coma and never actually came out of it,”  Edwards told CTV’s Canada AM Wednesday morning  from St Petersburg, Florida."

A few years ago, Buckdog reported on how the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had mounted a campaign of surveillance on Rita due to the fact that she attended 'women activist' meetings. 

Rita MacNeil was a true Canadian and her sweet voice will be missed.
