The text says: "he retired to his farm in Norval, Ontario to protest the lack of support given to Canadian stories by the policies of the Federal government," What does that mean? 金 (Kim) 02:49, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

As much as I love Stompin' Tom, this article smacks very faintly of POV. I'm going to ponder, and I might slap an NPOV notice on it, but if someone feels more strongly than I about the POV they're welcome to jump right in. --Neschek 22:02, 19 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Aside from a couple of comments I don't see too much POV. Maybe someone made an edit since the comment above was made, though. One thing I did do was to remove the notation "bootleg" from the discography. There are different definitions for bootleg, but to the best of my knowledge most if not all of the albums so noted were legitimately available for sale in Canada and were (and still are) available in libraries, etc. Most are on CD as well. It IS possible, however that they are only available in bootleg form outside Canada as Connors' music is rarely distributed outside the country. If anyone knows for certain, perhaps they can add a notation indicating same to the Discography? 23skidoo 14:36, 2 Nov 2004 (UTC)

"He has travelled to practically every town in Canada." How valid is this statement? --Zippanova 18:28, 1 May 2005 (UTC)

I've read somewhere, that the name of Tom's father was Tom Sullivan? Can anyone add to this? GoodDay 20:58, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

It says that he bought his guitar in Ohio? What's the source for that? 00:37, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Concert DVD question[edit]

Is the concert DVD released by Connors in 2006 the same program that he produced for the CBC but which was rejected? If so, this should be noted in the CBC controversy section. (talk) 16:36, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey. Whose Juno nomination produced his epic flame? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:47, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Calendar invention[edit]

I remember seeing a wonderful perpetual calendar that Tom invented. It was mentioned in his Complete Song Book. Could someone put that in the article? With a cited reference, cause no one will believe it.--Oracleofottawa (talk) 03:33, 27 September 2010 (UTC)


RIP stompin Tom mbr1983 01:47, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Globe OBit is stating the cause was renal failure and that he refused treatment.

A committed drinker and smoker, Mr. Connors, 77, died of renal failure in his home in the Halton Hills northwest of Toronto on March 6. He hadn't sought treatment, according to Mr. Edwards(Manager), preferring to succumb to mortality rather than submit to the often dubious miracles of medical technology. As he grew weaker in his last few weeks, he made his farewells, helped plan a memorial/fundraiser for the homeless and wrote a final letter to his fans, imploring them to "keep the Maple Leaf flying high" and reminding them that "this great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit ..."
