canadian veterans: Cherry was removed from Sportsnet Monday following a rant on Saturday's Hockey Night in Canada in which he implied that immigrants in Toronto are not paying their respects to Canadian veterans by wearing poppies, according to CTV. On this week's Coach's Corner segment, the 85-year-old said that he's less frequently seeing people wearing poppies anymore to honour fallen Canadian soldiers. If I had gone on and said a few things and done a few things I definitely would have been back, Cherry said in an interview with Newstalk 1010. He singled out those he believes are immigrants in Toronto, prompting a swift online backlash. Downtown Toronto Forget it, nobody wears a poppy. I live in Mississauga ... very few people wear a poppy. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
