Hockey Night commentator, Sportsnet cut ties over remarks about new immigrants
Brash, outspoken, opinionated — longtime hockey broadcaster Don Cherry was never afraid to ruffle feathers during his Coach’s Corner segment on Hockey Night in Canada.
But his latest outburst about new immigrants not wearing poppies cost him his job, and in an interview Monday night he wasn’t apologizing.
“I know what I said and I meant it. Still do. Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honour our fallen soldiers,” Cherry told The Canadian Press, saying Sportsnet fired him.
