Richard hosted a keynote interview with Spike Lee at Canadian Music Week. Lee was fascinating. They talked about creativity–“Creativity is one of the greatest gifts you can get.”–movies and he even created a new term for people who live in Toronto… Toroncanians. “As long as you’re living you have to work on your craft.” Amen.
