Barenaked Ladies singer Ed Robertson and three others are fine after being involved in a plane crash in Canada yesterday.

The float-plane, which Robertson was reportedly piloting, went down in the woods near Bancroft yesterday afternoon, as it tried to take off from Baptiste Lake.

The plane reportedly lost airspeed, then crashed.

A police official said everyone on board is fine, but refused to give details of who was on the plane, and did not confirm who was piloting, although intelligencer.ca reports that locals say it was Roberston himself.

An investigation has been launched by Canada's Transportation Safety Board.
