    That is a fair point and Cherry should not have mixed politics into his analyses. It’s also very unfortunate that the network re-upped his program instead of letting him retire with dignity. I don’t disagree with any of those.

    Bah. Whatever. It’s a four minute sideshow during the first intermission of HNIC. I remember when Cherry wasn’t there and now I get to see the post-Don broadcast. That, for me, was during the WHA times and when I could like the Habs (hate em now.) I refuse to see all of this as some sort of microcosm of or statement on Canada. Just bring on the hockey already

    No. My wife and children were all born in this country and have lived here all their lives. They are NOT immigrants, irrespective of people expressing ignorant opinions to the contrary.

    It’s a hypothetical.

    Now, a twist to my question would be if we actually had the data versus an unsubstantiated observation.

    Even aboriginal people migrated from Asia/Eurasia. Just a bad take all around.

    My 2 cents on Cherry. Disagree with him on hockey, on the military, but don’t think his position of assimilation is offensive. He didn’t say anything many Canadians wouldn’t say, including immigrants. Also, not racism at all.

    Is it people that can not handle the truth or is it the fake news pushing their agenda?
    I know last year there was a teenage girl murdered here and it was a refugee that did but the police had to spend hundreds of man hours (Largest Ever) to investigate 200 other suspects hoping it was not Trudeau's refugee or were they trying to bury the story.
    I live here on the west coast lower mainland where less than 50% of the population is white and I have never heard anyone play the race card but I always hear being used in the media ... why?

    In today's political and social climate it was just a matter of time he'd be canned. He should of stepped away from Coach's Corner years ago and stuck to making appearances at Junior games and military bases.

    It's not his place to compare the two, and it's certainly not his place to suggest either is doing a better job of anything than the other.

    He was given some leeway over time to say things such as, 'groups A and B need to wear more poppies'.

    But he took that rope, and hanged himself with it.

    If you want to discuss the subject go to the main boards to talk about it, this isn't a Jets subject. Don't open a new thread.
