  • Is it time for Hockey Night In Canada to replace Don Cherry?

After first giving Cherry's comments a vote of confidence with a thumbs up, Ron MacLean apologized Sunday evening on Twitter.

Cherry took issue with the lack of visible poppies being worn in public and portrayed immigrants as the lead cause.

"You people. you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that", Cherry said, with Coach's Corner co-host Ron MacLean looking on". He then began pointing his finger at the camera, "These guys paid for your way of life, the life you enjoy in Canada".

"We have spoken with Don about the severity of this issue and we sincerely apologize for these divisive remarks". But, last night I know we failed you.

Some pointed out that his comment ignores the fact that Canadian immigrants from numerous other parts of the world - including most of South Asia, China, West and North Africa, the Caribbean, much of the Middle East and Brazil - likely have relatives who served on the Allied side in World Wars I, II or in some cases, both.

Don Cherry addressed immigrants on Coach's Corner this weekend, claiming newcomers in the Toronto area aren't honouring Canada's veterans. "I have the honour of travelling across our country to celebrate Canada's game, and our diversity is one of our country's greatest strengths". Canadian Forces in the United States, a verified account of the Canadian Armed Forces, tweeted out photos of minorities who served in the military.

Every year in Canada, from the last Friday in October, leading up to Remembrance Day on November 11, poppies are sold to be worn as pins.

Rumours circulated about the possibility of Cherry being cut from Coach's Corner earlier this year after a Toronto Sun columnist wrote that his return to the show had not been confirmed by the summer.

Hockey Night in Canada used to be a long-time CBC Saturday night staple.

Rogers Media, a subsidiary of Rogers Communications, is the parent company of Sportsnet which also owns this website.

"As Rogers Sportsnet is the national rights holder for NHL Hockey in Canada, CBC has no purview over any editorial (choice of commentators or what they say) with respect to Hockey Night in Canada", CBC spokesman Chuck Thompson said in an email.
